Fire crews responded to two trucks on fire just north of Salina on Tuesday.
Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that authorities responded to a report of a truck fire at Gary Johnson Trucking, 517 W. Diamond Dr., at 5:41 p.m. on Tuesday.
Two trucks hooked to trailers were parked next to one another when one caught fire, which then spread to the truck next to it. The two trucks are a 2008 International Tractor valued at $35,000 and a 2006 Kenworth valued at $40,000.
Crews from both the Salina Fire Department and Rural Fire District No. 7 responded to the blaze and kept it from spreading to the trailers. Early reports indicate that no foul play is expected in the fire. Fire officials think a mechanical issue could be the cause.
Both trucks are a total loss.
