According to Mooresville Fire, the fire was the result of a mechanical problem with the pickup truck.

Crystal Blankenship, an employee who was working at the store, said a woman came into the store last night saying the truck was smoking and asking for some water. Blankenship gave the woman water and didn't see the woman again.

A few minutes later, the truck was completely engulfed in flames next to a gas pump.

Blankenship called 911 and first responders showed up to help put out the flames. She said the truck's owner then came back from the Popeye's restaurant next door.
