HAZELWOOD, Mo. — Black smoke came pouring from a Boeing parking lot Monday night after a row of service trucks caught on fire.
The trucks are owned by a maintenance company that does work for Boeing. The fire started at one of the vehicles and spread to two others.
A man who lives nearby said when the gas tanks exploded, his home rattled.
“We heard a boom and the whole building shook violently, and the pictures on the wall moved,” Bob Eberle said. “And I said 'That was weird, there's something wrong.'”
Boeing's fire department is now trying to figure out how the fire started. No one was hurt.
