Pinion Pine firefighters were dispatched to US Hwy 93 at the 106 mile marker Friday afternoon for a tractor trailer fire. The fire brought the response of E511 from Station 51, WT528 from Station 52 and the Duty Officer (Hood). Information was given in route that the semi trailer was detached from the tractor and fully involved with a load of tar paper. Units arrived on scene and deployed a 1 3/4 CAFS attack line and began suppression. Crews were on scene for approximately 3 hours while the load was overhauled. Traffic delays were minimal with a brief closure of southbound traffic by ADOT and AZDPS until the fire was knocked down and smoke was no longer impacting any drivers visibility. No civilian or firefighter injuries were reported.
