ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Firefighters are still trying to determine what caused a fire in Northwest Albany Friday morning that did more than $362,000  in damage to three tractor trailers.

The fire started about 12:20 off Palmyra Road at Brickline Court.

Three tractor trailers loaded with McDonald's food burned.

Two of the trucks and their trailers were destroyed.

The other was damaged.

"We're just not sure how it started," said Deputy Chief Ron Rowe.  "There was a lot of fire there. We had three trucks and trailers involved. Heavy fire load there, and it was a lot of fire. We just have not been able to determine what happened."

The fire also destroyed more than $12,000 worth of food in the trailers.
