FRANKLIN COUNTY, Wash. -- A large fire severely damaged seven semi trucks and a trailer at a transportation company late Saturday night.

Crews from Franklin County Fire District 3 worked for several minutes to contain the blaze and keep it from spreading to other nearby vehicles.

According to a report by NewsRadio 610 KONA, no fire hydrants were on scene, and water tenders were used to fight the fire.
