BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Sunday evening, the Bowling Green Fire Department responded to a fire involving a tractor-trailer.

It happened at Greenline Express Inc. off of Russellville Road after business hours, when officials say no one was there.

Deputy Fire Chief Rob Gilliam said the fire was mostly limited to the tractor-driving portion itself. It extended to one of the nearby trailers, which was empty.

Out of over 20 tractor trailers nearby, that was the only one involved.

Russellville Road had to be closed for about a half hour for crews to channel in water from a hydrant on the other side.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation.
