3-Alarm fire in Rockdale, 6-3-22 (more)


Excerpts from

Police in Rockdale shared bodycam video of a massive fire that destroyed most of the Longhorn Trucking facility last Friday.

Thick smoke can be seen and explosions can be heard in the background. The blaze engulfed a warehouse and a number of semi trucks parked around the buildings. The fire appeared to be largely contained and extinguished shortly after 5:30 p.m., though firefighters remained on scene fighting hotspots.

The cause of the blaze was still unknown Wednesday.
