Firefighters called to garbage truck fire

GLASGOW — A Glasgow Fire Department engine responded at 4:51 p.m. Saturday to Lakeside Recycling, 520 Industrial Drive, for a report of a garbage truck on fire.

On arrival, firefighters found there were two garbage trucks on fire and requested an additional ladder truck to respond to the scene for extra manpower and water, according to a GFD press release.

Firefighters had to make entry through a locked gate and used a preconnected hose line off Engine 3 to  knock down the fire in both trucks. One truck was a 2000 Peterbilt valued at $60,000; the other was a 2005 Mack and was valued at $120,000. Both were listed as total losses. The cause was not determined. There were no injuries reported and firefighters were on the scene around 1 ½ hours.
