Business Damaged by a Truck Fire Inside the Building

 

LEE’S SUMMIT, MO— On Tuesday, April 7, 2020, at 4:16 a.m., the Lee’s Summit Fire Department responded to 1150 SE Hamblen Road for an automatic fire alarm. When crews arrived, they found the service garage at Sutton Trucking filled with thick smoke and upgraded the incident to a structure fire.

Crews entered the smoke-filled service area and located a fire in a commercial truck.  The sprinkler system had activated over the truck and contained the fire to the vehicle. Crews completed extinguishment of the fire inside the truck and removed the smoke from the building. A search of the entire building confirmed it was unoccupied. The incident was under control by 5:09 a.m.

Fire damage was contained to the truck with smoke damage to the remainder of the service area. Closed doors kept the smoke out of the offices. The fire is believed to have been caused by an undetermined failure within the vehicle.
