Employee arrested, charged for last week’s fire at trucking company


A man has been arrested for a recent truck fire at a newly opened truck yard in Pennsylvania last week. 

The fire happened on Wednesday, August 24th at Estes Express Lines in Mahoning Township and was the second fire at the new location in less than a month. 

According to WFMZ 69 News, 39-year-old Anthony Dick, an employee of Estes Express Lines, set the fire that destroyed trailers and damaged a building. Dick initially denied any involvement, then told police he accidentally backed into a flammable skid.

Dick has since been arrested and charged with arson and risking a catastrophe. Authorities have not said if the most recent fire and the fire earlier this month are connected.
