Firefighters Extinguish Semi Trailer Fire in Bridgeport Township

Firefighters in Bridgeport Township were on the scene of a semi-trailer fire Monday afternoon.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 7000 block of Dixie Highway around 12:15, and found the semi trailer with heavy fire. Initial reports indicated there may have been plastic or Styrofoam inside, but officials say it was determined to be a foam/rubber material.

The fire was extinguished with help from the Frankenmuth and Birch Run Fire Departments.

Officials say if workers at the location hadn’t moved the truck away from the building it was near, the fire could have been much worse.
