Bartlett Fire Protection District firefighters extinguished four burning semitrailer vehicles in a truck lot early Sunday. No injuries were reported.

The 2:42 a.m. call to the 31W100 block of West Bartlett Road initially was reported as a structure fire, officials said. The first crews on the scene encountered large flames and smoke, and quickly determined that only the four trucks were involved.

 

The fire was attacked aggressively by 18 responding firefighters and declared under control at 3:30 a.m., according to the fire district.

Damage estimates were not immediately available and the cause of the fire remained under investigation Monday.

Fire crews from the East Dundee and Hanover Park fire departments were among the initial responders as part of an automatic aid agreement.
