Columbia Falls firefighters put out a dump truck that caught on fire at Landscapes North off Dillon Road Thursday afternoon. The fire likely started from a space heater that was put in the cab to dry it out, Columbia Falls Fire Chief Rick Hagen said.
Initial reports said that small propane tanks in the cab were also on fire, but Hagen noted that they had gone off before firefighters arrived. He said the cab of the truck was gutted, but the engine didn’t appear damaged as the fire was contained to the cab.
No one was injured in the blaze.
