Multiple T.F.R.D. crews battled a challenging fire on the Veterans Glass City Skyway Bridge this morning at approximately 10:15. The semi experienced some type of mechanical failure leading to the fire.
Unfortunately, two civilians were injured during this incident. The operator of the semi attempted to fight the fire prior to the arrival of T.F.R.D. crews and received a minor injury and was treated on scene by T.F.R.D. Another civilian was injured when flaming debris fell to the Craig Street bridge which is just adjacent to the V.G.C.S. Bridge. That person was transported to the hospital for treatment.
Kudos to our T.F.R.D. crews that fought this difficult fire in a tough location.
