Firefighters were dispatched to Hwy 251 just north of Hwy 173 this afternoon for a semi-trailer hauling cut up cars on fire. The northbound lanes of Hwy 251 were quickly shut down as the hose lines were pulled. The driver had dropped the trailer and had pulled ahead saving the cab. firefighters laddered the trailer and tried using water and foam, but the hose spray from the quint would finally extinguish all the fire. Pnuematic shocks etc could be heard exploding inside as the firefighters fought the fire. No one was injured as the firefighters fought the fire in almost 100 degree weather.
