SELKIRK - Firefighters were called to an industrial complex in Selkirk for a fire early Monday morning.

They arrived on scene at Oldcastle Building Systems after 3:30 a.m.

The Coeymans Hollow Fire Chief says a tractor-trailer had caught fire, but some employees were able to put out most of the fire with fire extinguishers.

Firefighters finished the job.

The bigger problem was the amount of smoke from the fire. Coeymans Hollow Fire Chief Bill Kapusta says high-pressure ventilation fans helped force some of the smoke out.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Several other fire companies and Albany County sheriff's deputies were on scene helping out.
