Hazmat Response to Virginia Tractor-Trailer Fire

Multiple fire departments and hazmat teams responded to a tractor-trailer fire in York County (VA), reports The Virginia Daily Press (http://bit.ly/1nxHo5Z).

York County Fire & Life Safety Assistant Chief Paul Long said the tractor-trailer was fully engulfed in flames when crews arrived.

Long said firefighters could see heavy smoke coming from the fire on their way to the scene and called the Newport News and Langley Air Force fire departments to assist.

Hazmat teams were called in due to the materials in the trash the trailer was carrying and fuel that had spread onto the roadway, Long said.
