A trio of highway tractor units were found ablaze when Prince George Fire Rescue were called to the the BCR Industrial Site early Thursday morning.

The damage could have been much worse if not for some quick action.

"A fast attack on these units contained and extinguished the fire, which saved multiple highway tractor units from fire damage," assistant fire chief John Law said.

Nine firefighters from two halls were called to the scene in the 100 block of Great Street at 2 a.m.

Cause of the fire is under investigation. Damage is estimated at $500,000.
