Local resident John Vasquez took this picture Wednesday at Crop Production Services, 1500 Seagraves Highway after a tractor-trailer caught on fire at the facility while making a drop-off. Vasquez, who works in the facility’s warehouse, said they called 9-1-1 shortly after the rig caught on fire. He said both he and the truck driver (from Dumas)worked to contain the fire until the Brownfield Fire Department arrived on scene to fully extinguish it. Vasquez said they weren’t able to determine the cause of the fire. BFD Chief Dennis Rowe confirmed that the cause of the fire had yet to be determined.
