Four semitrailers go up in flames in Pacific, Washington

Associated Press

PACIFIC, Wash. – Four semitrailers burned in Pacific, Washington, and the loss in equipment is estimated to be about $2 million.

The News Tribune reported that fire crews were called at 2:43 a.m. Tuesday to a reported commercial building fire.

What they actually found when they arrived in the 1200 block of Valentine Avenue was four fully involved semitrailers.

Fire crews kept the fire from spreading to other vehicles and nearby structures.

There were no injuries reported.

The Fire Authority says the cause of the fire is under investigation.

The Environmental Protection Agency has been notified due to fuel and other contaminants at the scene.
