Cleanup effort still ongoing after semi truck fire


Skepticism remains from semi truck fire on Martin Luther King Day

YUMA, Ariz (KYMA, KECY) - Clean up is still ongoing after a semi-fire at a gas station in Yuma three weeks ago Monday.

The fire took place at a Speedway gas station on E. 32nd street on January, 16th.

The remains of the truck are still intact, with gas pumps near the wreckage inaccessible to use.

Yuma Rural Metro had jurisdiction over the incident within their county of coverage, but says the case remains unsolved, and that the issue is beyond their handling, and that insurance companies have intervened on both the gas station and truck owner's behalf.

The Speedway gas station where the semi-truck combusted does not have further comment at this time.
