    A trash truck dumped its load along Lincoln Drive in Philadelphia after the garbage caught fire Wednesday evening.

    The incident blocked the northbound lanes of Lincoln Drive near Cherokee Street in Mt. Airy around 5 p.m., said Philadelphia firefighters.

    As SkyForce10 hovered over the scene a short time later, police could be seen directing traffic around the garage, which appeared to no longer be on fire.

    No injuries were reported.

    The private garbage truck came to a stop a short distance in front of the dumped load.
