A passer-by reported the blaze at 1:16 a.m. in the parking lot of A Action Truck and Trailer Repair, 835 10th St. N.E.

The fire apparently started in one semi tractor, spread to an empty fuel tanker trailer and then spread to another tractor Schatschneider said.

All three units were completely destroyed.

Foul play is not suspected.

"From all appearances right now it was a malfunction, maybe an electrical malfunction in the unit of origin," Schatschneider said

The fire remains under investigation.
