Garbage Truck Catches Fire

The Bellevue Fire Department last Wednesday responded to a call of the city’s garbage truck on fire. According to city officials, it appears that someone dumped hot ashes or smoldering logs into one of the dumpsters.  They say that the emptying of the dumpster and the wind that day may have caused the ashes to spark back up inside the truck.  Public Works Superintendent Nick Kilburg saw smoke coming out of the garbage truck when he returned from his lunch break.  Luckily, the truck was parked outside.  No one was injured and no damage was caused to the garbage truck.
