Davenport fire crews called to semi on fire at truck stop


truck-fire2DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) — Fire crews were called to a semi on fire at the Flying J Truck Stop at I-80 and Northwest Boulevard.

Officials tell us the driver noticed smoke so he pulled into truck stop. The cab of the truck was destroyed, but nothing in trailer.

There were no injuries, but the truck was near a storm drain, so oil that leaked from the vehicle had to be contained.

The fire was not near pumps or gas tanks. A bio-diesel truck was next to it but officials say it wasn’t close enough to cause concern.

There is no word on how the fire started.
