Officials said there were no injuries after a tractor-trailer caught fire Wednesday night near Hooker.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a tractor-trailer was traveling west on U.S. Highway 54 when the driver noticed sparks coming from the trailer. The driver pulled over onto a shoulder and saw the trailer on fire. He attempted to put out the fire with an extinguisher and then called 911, OHP said.
Hooker Fire Department and Texas County Sheriff’s Department responded to the call, and Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded around 10:30 p.m.
Firefighters had the fire under control before it was able to spread to nearby rail road tracks. After fighting the blaze inside the trailer for a few hours, the firefighters extinguished the fire.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. The tractor was hauling a refrigerated unit that was fully loaded, OHP said. The trailer was completely damaged due to the fire spreading throughout the trailer.
The driver was able to disconnect the tractor from the trailer, OHP said. – See more at: http://www.guymondailyherald.com
