Fires at Kingsport truck stop under investigation

Authorities are investigating a blaze that destroyed two tractor trailers at a Kingsport truck stop.

A press release from Kingsport police says officers were called to Tri City Truck Stop, 9954 Airport Parkway, at approximately 12:15 Monday morning. They found two tractor trailers "engulfed in flames."

The Kingsport Fire Department responded to extinguish the fires, but the tractor trailers were total losses. KPD Public Information Officer Tom Patton says no one was inside either of the truck cabs when the incident occurred.

Both the KPD and KFD are investigating the incident. A cause has yet to be determined.
