This early morning fire proved to be very difficult to fight as this van type trailer was being used to store compressed paper and cardboard as a recycle project for Bunger Intermediate School.  The alarm was reported shortly after 3:30 PM and the first-in engine found flames already venting through the roof of the trailer.  A backhoe was brought in from Frickson Trucking and Excavation to pull the trailer sides and bundled papers so crews could apply a water/foam mixture to extinguish the fire.  The cause remains under investigation.
