February 24, 2016

Quick work by firefighters from Florida and Alabama saved a couple of U.S. Mail trucks Tuesday night at the I-10 Welcome Center on the state line.

Firefighters from the Beulah Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and Baldwin County arrived to find the cab of a flatbed 18-wheeler fully involved. Fire crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze and prevent further damage to two U.S. Postal Service vehicles it was carrying.  One postal vehicle did receive minor damage.

There were no injuries reported and no immediate word on the cause of the fire.
