Commercial Structure Fire

After our rollover TC we tried to go back and finish our movie. We got another 30 minutes into it when we were toned out for a commercial structure fire. That really got the adrenaline going! As soon as we cleared the bay we figured that it was a bogus call because there was no smoke in the direction of the address. We arrived on scene at Circle K and didn't see anything. We were then approached by a couple people that said there had been a truck fire. Upon further investigation we discovered that a Ford F-150 had a piece of cardboard stuck next to the muffler. The cardboard had caught fire and scorched some of the paint and scared the occupants. I climbed under the truck and put out all the hot spots that were left with a garden hose. Pretty anti-climatic to go from a structure fire to a smoldering piece of cardboard.
