Fire Department Saves Semi
Date posted - December 29, 2015
Sioux Center, Iowa — The Sioux Center Fire Department responded to a fire call on Monday afternoon.
According to Sioux Center Fire Chief David Van Holland, it was paged out about 1:30 PM. The page was for a semi on fire at Center Fresh Eggs. From Pizza Hut on Highway 75, that’s about three and a half miles west at 410th Street and Garfield Avenue. He says when they got there, they saw eight of the tires on a side-dump semi were on fire. He says Center Fresh was using the semi when he thinks there was some sort of mechanical failure such as the brakes locking up.
He says they were able to save the truck and everything around it, but he says all eight truck tires were a total loss.
He says they didn’t use much water and were on scene for about a half hour.
