(Anita) The Anita Fire Department received a call early Tuesday afternoon in regards to a vehicle on fire near the intersection of Highway 148 and Highway 83.
Here’s Anita Fire Chief Duane Murphy.
"A semi-tractor trailer was fully engulfed. We extinguished it reasonably quickly and efficiently and the driver was out when we got to the scene."
Anyone in the area may have heard a couple of explosions, that was the fuel tank, and a tire, but again noone was injured. The semi however is a total loss, as are all of the contents. The semi was carrying restaurant supplies.
Chief Murphy says the fire started under the hood and there is no known cause at this time do to the extent of the damage.
