WARREN, Ohio -

Fire crews had to work quickly Friday morning to extinguish a smelly situation. 

The Warren Fire Department was called out shortly after 8:30 a.m. when a garbage truck caught fire on Hollywood St. NE near Kenilworth Avenue. 

According to 911 dispatchers, the rear end of the truck, where the garbage goes in, caught on fire. 

Officials say the truck was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived on the scene. 

Officials say the driver of the garbage truck was outside the vehicle by the tie they got to the fire. 

It is unknown at this time what sparked the flames, although dispatchers say the truck was being worked on at the time.
