AUGUSTA, Ga. -- There is no word on what may have caused a fire involving two tractor trailers at the Pepsi plant on Bobby Jones Expressway Tuesday afternoon.

Both trucks made routine deliveries Tuesday morning and were parked in the back of the plant when the fire started. People inside the plant heard two loud explosions and noticed a truck caught fire -- they aren't sure how. This then spread to another truck.

No one was inside the trucks at the time of the fire.

The plant was evacuated as crews worked to put out the fire.

No injuries have been reported at this time.
