Saturday morning fire under investigation at Gana Trucking
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Investigators are working to determine what caused a fire at Gana Trucking in southern Lancaster County.
Volunteer firefighters were called to the company’s facility just after 6:30 a.m. on 54th Street, between Bennet and Wittstruck Roads.
According to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, the fire was contained to the steel maintenance building on the northwest side of the property. LSO adds that the fire caused roughly $5,000 in damage to the building.
LSO and the State Fire Marshal’s Office are investigating.
According to Captain Tommy Trotter, investigators believe sparks from one of the workers cutting something with a torch the night before caused the fire. Captain Trotter said fire investigators believe sparks got in the wall and spread.
Hickman, Southeast and Bennet Volunteer Fire Departments all responded to the scene. No injuries were reported, and crews had the fire out by the time a 10/11 NOW reporter arrived at the scene a little after 7 a.m.
