SIBIU COUNTY, Romania -- A tanker truck exploded in Romania and most of it was caught on tape.

The truck was carrying a component of asphalt when the fire broke out which then caused the explosion.

You can see in the video when the actual explosion occurs. The explosion is so forceful the person filming the tanker nearly gets knocked over.

According to initial reports from Romania, it appeared the driver left the heating system on overnight that keeps the emulsion from solidifying, which started the fire.

It took five firefighting teams more than 40 minutes to put the fire out.
