UPDATE @ 4:59 p.m.: The cause of the semi fire at a Dayton truck yard, which caused an estimated $100,000 damage to two semis and two passenger vehicles, is under investigation, Dayton fire Capt. Gregory Patterson said.
No one was injured and the building at Liberty Transportation Inc., 1795 Stanley Ave., where mechanics service the big rigs, did not catch fire, he said. The semitrailer involved in the initial fire is a total loss, he said.
A crew with the Ohio EPA has been called to handle the fuel, oil and antifreeze that spilled from the vehicles, Patterson said.
Employees tell us the business will be open Wednesday.
UPDATE @ 4:30 p.m.: The semitrailer that caught fire was parked outside the main building at Liberty Transportation Inc., but the flames did not spread to the building.
There has been a diesel fuel spill, which will have to be dealt with. There are no reports of any injuries.
