Fire crews battled an electric semi-truck fire in Phoenix Friday morning.

The fire broke out around 9 a.m. near 40th Street and Broadway Road.

Representatives of the business say the truck was in pre-production and was an inoperative vehicle that was being worked on. The incident involved the battery compartment

of the truck.

Video from the scene showed fire crews continuously dousing the truck in water in an effort to cool the battery.

One business was evacuated during the fire and no injuries were reported.

This is the second known fire involving an electric truck in the Valley in a matter of days.
