Thirteen trucks destroyed in fire at Wisconsin trucking facility


Authorities are investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed multiple semi trucks in Green Bay over the weekend.

The fire was reported shortly after 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 30, at the Contract Transport Services facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin, according to a report from the Green Bay Police Department.

Police say that the fire began when a single semi truck started to burn for reasons still under investigation and that the fire then spread to other trucks.

The fire spread to 12 other trucks before firefighters were able to get it under control.

No injuries were reported.

Contract Transport Services President Curt Reitz told WBAY that the truck that initially caught fire had been parked for at least a day prior to the fire: “We were able to watch surveillance footage and we know the truck had been sitting for 24 hours prior to the fire. So, it hadn’t even been running on Sunday.”

The state Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of the fire.
