Semi-truck fire response

December 18, 2013 

D ec. 6 — A large semi truck driver called 9-1-1 from state Route 16 after his rear brakes had seized worrying the man of a potential brake fire. Although the brakes were very hot, there was no fire. The driver made arrangements to have the vehicle repaired or towed and said he would wait at the scene after firefighters went in-service.
