CULVER, OR -- Jefferson County Fire District #1 responded to a fuel tanker fire on Friday morning at the ODOT weigh scales at Juniper Butte on Highway 97 south of Culver. When crews arrived they found a semi with a trailer hauling gasoline on fire. The Incident Commander brought in an Airport Crash Rescue Firefighting truck which made the first knock down while other engines helped to completely extinguish the blaze. Firefighters were able to save the front half of the fuel tank and the cab and front end of the semi and the entire fuel tanker trailer.
