WOW! One of the first IMPD officers on scene sent me this video. We’re told business is M&K Truck Centers.

Semi Fire Southside

We captured this video on our INDOT camera just before 4:30AM showing one of several reported explosions that happened on the south side. Several semis and dump trucks were ablaze at M&K Trucking Company.The fires have since been put out but investigators are still on scene trying to figure out how the fires started. Fortunately, we haven't heard reports of any injuries and traffic is NOT impacted.
