“It was about 3:30 and my fiancé came downstairs yelling there was a fire,” said Kerrie Kelly, a neighbor that witnessed the fire. “He heard and felt the explosions and hissing.”

The neighbor then called the fire department and they made sure everyone was okay.

When they arrived, they found Dave Clark who stays in a trailer on the property and he moved trucks next to it to keep the fire from spreading to more trucks.

“I got into the truck that wasn’t affected, got it started and got it out of the way to make a fire break for the fire department,” Clark said. “So they could work on the three that were involved.”

Heavy smoke was seen billowing up from the trucks and some of the flames were so tall, they were as high as the bridge near the yard.

According to the fire battalion chief, there was nothing in the bed of the trucks at the time of the fire. He said the explosion sounds would have been the tires catching on fire.

No one was injured in the fire.

The arson team was called in as part of the investigation. The cause is not yet known.

Clark said despite the danger, he wasn’t worried.

“I’m a farmer. We take care of stuff, so you try to save what you can save,” he told KDKA as smoke continued to come off the burnt trucks Wednesday morning.
