Two semi tractors caught fire on Tuesday night after jumper cables were being used to charge one of the trucks, the Jackson County Sheriff said.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a semi-tractor on fire near 190th and US-75 highway around 10:30 pm Tuesday night, Sheriff Tim Morse said. The fire was about halfway between Holton and Mayetta in Jackson County.

On arrival, crews found a second semi parked next to the other also caught fire. The fire was extinguished at about 11 p.m., Morse said.

No one was injured in the fire.

Fire departments from Mayetta, Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, Hoyt and Holton all responded to the fire, as well as Jackson County EMS, and Prairie Band police.

No other details were immediately available.
