On Sept 2, 2011 around 11:53 PM, Pinion Pine E511, C501 and WT528R were dispatched to Interstate 40 and DW Ranch Rd for a reported tractor trailer fire. First units on scene found a fully involved semi on the eastbound on-ramp with secondary brush involvement. Crews made quick work and contained the brush fire to 1/10 of an acre and controlled the tractor fire with minimal extension to the trailer. Crews were on scene for approx. 3 hours while overhaul was completed.
