Semi Catches Fire in Williston | VideoChris Williams | 1/2/2013
Firefighters used a few hundred gallons of water to put the fire out, but not before the cab was destroyed. The majority of the fire was in the engine compartment, so crews still aren`t sure why the truck suddenly went up in flames.
“It could be anything from electrical to a fuel leak. It`s hard to even speculate until the person can get in and actually look at it and confirm exactly what happened. We know kind of where it started, but it`s a case if figuring out what started it, that`s going to be the issue,” said Williston Fire Chief Alan Hanson.
A few people were checked out for smoke inhalation, but there were no injuries.
