CAB DESTROYED
CAB DESTROYED — Union City firefighters were called to the parking lot behind Food Plaza on West Reelfoot Avenue early today for a fire that destroyed the cab of this tractor-trailer. Firefighter Jimmy Barron hosed down the cab while fellow firefighter Dale Webb used bolt cutters to sever lines under the cab. The driver of the truck, John Dixon, was actually in the cab when the fire broke out but was able to escape without injury. The cab of the truck was fully involved by fire when firefighters arrived on the scene shortly after 7 a.m. today, and they were able to quickly extinguish the blaze. The tractor-trailer was registered in Laredo, Texas, according to the Union City Fire Department. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
