Great Dane fire results in minimal damage

Monday, July 24, 2006

Around 4 p.m. Saturday, members of The Brazil City Fire Department responded to a 911 call from security personnel at Great Dane Trailers,on U.S. 40 east of Brazil.

Spontaneous combustion is being considered the possible cause for a dumpster fire located under a covered facility near the parking lot on the north side of the building. Fire Chief Tobey Archer said decaying filter materials in the dumpster could have generated enough heat to ignite the fire. Firemen filled the dumpster with water and had the fire under control by 4:30 p.m. with minimum damage.
