The chief said one of the victims from the truck is being treated for breathing in smoke.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead on scene by the coroner.

The fire chief credits the help of two people passing by with keeping the truck fire from spreading by shoveling dirt on the flames until firefighters arrived.
