SCHOFIELD (WAOW) -- No one is injured after a semi truck goes up in flames, Monday morning.

According to the Schofield Fire Chief, Tracy Fremming, the semi was parked in the industrial park when the driver left the truck to get some food. When the driver returned, the semi was fully engulfed in flames.

Fremming tells Newsline 9's Cami Mountain that another person unsuccessfully attempted to put out the fire after fearing the driver was asleep inside.

Officials say a space heater was running in the truck at the time of the blaze. The fire remains under investigation.
