The cause of the fire was under investigation Saturday evening.

Two county firefighters from the Heber station responded and controlled the fire within six minutes, extinguishing it within 10 minutes.

Crews said the cabin of the truck was engulfed when they arrived on scene. The cabin was gutted by the flames.

No injuries resulted from the blaze.
