Traffic was at a standstill just south of I-10 in Defuniak Springs due to a Bud Light truck that caught fire while driving down the roadway.

According to Walton County Sheriff's officials, the driver saw smoke coming from his truck, then decided it was best to pull over and get out of the truck before it got worse.

Walton County Fire Rescue responded and quickly put out the fire, but kept the roadway closed as they worked on transferring the cargo and clearing the road.

The driver was not hurt and they even saved the beer.
