Several fire crews were called into action following a trailer fire on Tuesday afternoon.

That blaze broke out on the northbound side of Hwy 287 at a truck stop just west of Iowa

Fire crews from Iowa Park, Electra, Burkburnett and Wichita Falls were all on scene along with NewsChannel six crews.
Officials believe a cooling unit may have the source of the fire, but the cause is still under investigation.
The tractor-trailer was hauling pecans but officials said the cargo and trailer were a total loss.
Traffic at one point was backed up all the way to the first exit to Iowa Park.
