Around 14:30 on October 30th, 2018 South Metro Fire Rescue responded to a garbage truck fire in front of 6228 S. Troy Circle in Centennial.  Heavy smoke and flames were visible from the cargo area when crews arrived and full natural gas tanks on top of the vehicle were threatened.  The street was immediately closed and the load of burning trash was dumped out to reduce damage to the truck.  Firefighters spent the next 30-45 minutes extinguishing the trash large pile using water and foam.  Dirt was piled in the gutter to prevent runoff from entering the storm drains and the water department responded to make sure it wasn’t hazardous to their system.  

Units on Scene: Battalion 32, Tower 35, Engine 31 & Medic 31
