(ABC 6 News) – The Albert Lea Fire Rescue team responded to a vehicle-trailer fire Saturday morning in the McDonalds parking lot.

According to ALFR, crews were called to the 2000 block of Bridge Ave. around 11:30 a.m. to a report of a fire in a trailer being pulled by a truck.

Once on the scene, firefighters found the trailer had been disconnected from the vehicle, as flames were coming out of the front half of the trailer’s roof.

According to witnesses at the scene, the trailer belonged to a family from Wisc.

Roy Sul was in the McDonalds parking lot when he noticed the flames and called for help.

“I started seeing smoke come out of the trailer and I went inside the hotel there to ask if they had a fire extinguisher, and of course, they came out and they called the fire department,” said Sul. “The fire department came out pretty quick and they tackled the problem.”

Firefighters remained on the scene for around an hour, removing belongings from the trailer as they extinguished the flames.

According to ALFR, the fire was caused due to heat from one of the trailer’s tires. The damages are estimated at around $17,000.

The Albert Lea Police Dept. also responded to the scene.
