Truck Catches Fire at Mosinee Recycling Facility

No one was hurt after a recycling truck caught fire this evening at a business in Mosinee. The fire began just after 5:00pm at the Irow Recycling facility. A truck that was parked inside the building caught fire, but did not cause significant damage to the facility itself.

The company's owner credits his employees quick action in keeping the fire from spreading.

"Immediately the two guys who were with me called 911 and got our other trucks out of the building and the truck just kept burning and burning." says Irow owner Cory Tomczyk.

The truck is a total loss. Investigators are still not sure what caused the vehicle to go up in flames.
