The City of Corpus Christi, Texas, is working with one less vehicle after one of its dump trucks caught fire.

A dump truck was parked at the city service center when it caught fire, reports KRISTV. The fire is still under investigation, but Corpus Christi Police Department suspects an electrical malfunction in the truck caused something inside the engine compartment or cabin to ignite.

No other damage was caused to the service center’s gas pump or other vehicles parked at the center.
