Tractor-trailer blaze on Armory Road PDF Print
Tuesday, 27 November 2007 06:15

Firefighters called out to the American Drew plant on Armory Road in North Wilkesboro just after 7 p.m. last night thought they were attending a structure fire.

Upon arrival, firefighters discovered a tractor-trailer fire in progress in the parking lot. Fire investigator Nick Hamby says the blaze started in a truck not attached to a trailer and moved to truck attached to a trailer loaded with furniture. The fire completely destroyed the first vehicle, causing an estimated $200,000 in damage.

While firefighters were able to stifle the flames in about fifteen minutes, they had the tedious job of sorting through all the furniture remnants for hot spots.

Hamby says the blaze was likely caused by an electric malfunction.
