Trash ignites in truck


A city-owned garbage truck dumps trash that caught fire while Wilmington Fire Department crews work to extinguish it Monday morning. “With a fire like that, you have to empty the entire truck and spread it all out to extinguish it,” said WFD Lieutenant Ed Myers. He said the fire was contained in 45 minutes and without injury, and he reminded people not to throw away chemicals or hazardous materials, which can often catch fire, taking them instead to an appropriate recycling or disposal site. Myers said the fire remains under investigation.
