PIERCE – Students at an elementary school were moved inside after a tanker truck caught fire in Pierce Thursday.
The call came out just before noon to a tanker truck that caught fire near the Pierce Maintenance Building on Main Street. The fire damaged other vehicles, and caused students from Pierce Elementary School across the street to evacuate to a safe location.
The fire was under control by about 12:30. There’s been no word as to what caused it.
We have reporters at the scene and will bring you much more as it becomes available.
