Tractor trailers carrying cardboard catches fire, prompts hourslong response from Attleboro crews

Authorities are investigating after they say several tractor trailers caught fire in an Attleboro industrial lot Monday night.

Crews responding to the area of 527 Pleasant Street around 7:00 p.m., found four tractor trailers engulfed in flames, according to the Attleboro Fire Department.

Officials say the trailers were filled with cardboard, which fueled the flames for nearly two hours. Once the fires were finally under control, firefighters remained on scene until 1:00 a.m. to check for hotspots.

There were no reports of any injuries.

Firefighters returned to the scene on Tuesday morning to wet down any remaining smoldering areas.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
