NEW BEDFORD — Minimal damage was reported after a truck erupted in flames in a garage at the former site of Beacon Lumber in New Bedford.

The New Bedford Fire Department reports in a Facebook post that firefighters responded to reports of a structure fire at 513 Church Street at approximately 9:25 p.m. on Tuesday.

Upon arrival, fire crews found a large dump truck had caught fire inside of a garage at the site, with its cab and engine fully involved in flames.

Two engines worked to extinguish the truck fire, while a ladder truck extinguished a small fire in the building's roof.

The fire was knocked down and the ceiling was cooled with water to protect the metal-supported roof. Firefighters ventilated the building, which houses Beacon Hardware and Dance Xtreme.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
