Downtown Electra is evacuated this morning after a trash truck catches fire. 

A trash truck carrying what was described as hazard materials caught fire near downtown Electra.

Electra Police Chief Johnny Morris says the entire downtown area has been vacated and Wichita Falls Haz-Mat crews are on the scene.

The IESI Solid Waste Disposal Company is also on scene assisting, and the teams are working on a clean up plan now.

We have a crew in Electra now and will bring you more information as it becomes available.
