A local trucking company is staying on the road despite a fire destroying one of their shops in Idaho Falls Friday. Super T Transport on North Boulevard caught fire around 8:30 a.m. and prompted a large response from the Idaho Falls Fire Department. When firefighters arrived, flames engulfed the entire shop building that housed three semi-truck, two trailers and other equipment. Everything inside the building was destroyed. “Considering the circumstances we’re doing pretty good,” Super T President Heath Treasure told EastIdahoNews.com. “We’re really thankful for the outpouring of support from the community.” Investigators have been combing through the fire since firefighters got it under control Friday. Treasure says the fire ignited in a welding accident and got out of control. Idaho Falls Fire Department spokeswoman Kerry Hammon said the fire still remains under investigation and an official cause won’t be released until the inquiry’s conclusion.
