A 24′ cargo truck on fire (Sept. 24) brought one engine and a ladder truck from Lakewood Fire to Sales Road. The truck was inside a locked gate, crews had to cut the lock before being able to extinguish the fire. The truck was used for blowing in insulation.
Fire fighters extinguished the fire quickly keeping it from spreading to other nearby trucks. The fire appears to have been started by a battery or wiring problem. No injuries were reported.
