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┬álocking 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.
