It was a busy afternoon for firefighters in Vinton.

Drivers on I-10 between El Paso and Las Cruces saw why. Drivers saw a thick plume of black smoke drifting over the interstate.

A fire broke out at a Vinton trucking company just before 3:30, Monday afternoon.

Sheriff's deputies say the fire destroyed a wooden building as well as a semi-truck that was parked inside.

Investigators say the fire appears to be accidental but arson can't be ruled out yet.
