At 11:57 on December 18, a truck loaded with cardboard boxes caught fire at the intersection of Wutong Road and Binhe Avenue in Lieshan District. After receiving the alarm, Lieshan Fire Rescue Squadron immediately dispatched 2 fire trucks and 10 commanders to the scene for disposal.
After the firefighters arrived at the scene, they discovered that a front, back, and eight trucks were on fire. The smoke was billowing at the scene, and the fire had spread to the cab. The commander immediately laid a water hose and sent out two water guns to suppress and control the open flame. Due to the large amount of cargo on the vehicle, the owner contacted others in time and pushed the carton down from the vehicle with a bulldozer to facilitate the firefighters. After 1 hour and 40 minutes, the fire was completely extinguished.
After questioning the owner, during the driving process, he found that there was smoke coming out of the rearview mirror through the rearview mirror, so he parked the car at the roadside for inspection. However, due to the large fire, the vehicle fire extinguisher could not extinguish the fire, and then called the police for help.
The fire department reminds drivers that in winter, the weather is dry and prone to fire accidents, they should always pay attention to vehicle maintenance, check the vehicle before leaving the car, avoid fatigue, and prevent fire. At the same time, vehicles must be equipped with emergency fire extinguishing equipment. In the event of a dangerous situation, quickly call 119 to call the police.
