The fire started around 7 a.m. in the tractor portion of the rig. The container was not hooked to the tractor at the time, according to South Davis Metro Fire Chief Jeff Bassett. Damage to the tractor and mini-van is estimated at $100,000. There were no injuries. Two engines were called out to fight the fire.
Bassett believes the semi was owned by a sub-contractor.
Cause of the fire is still under investigation.
