On, Thursday, July 18th at approximately 8:30 a.m., fire and rescue units and the Hazmat team were dispatched to a truck fire located in the 11110 block of Industrial Drive in Manassas.
Upon arrival, fire and rescue units found a front load garbage truck on fire.
During the suppression operations, several hydraulic lines on the truck failed due to fire impingement which created a release of hydraulic fluid. The Hazmat team contained the hydraulic fluid spill while firefighters completed fire extinguishment. Overhaul operations were lengthy due to the contents of the truck.
No injuries reported.
A preliminary damage estimate to the vehicle is $40,000.
County police assisted with traffic control.
The fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshal’s Office.
