LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Five trucks were damaged or destroyed Sunday morning in a truck yard fire on the west side of the valley.

Clark County firefighters responded just before 9:30 a.m. to a fire at Penske Trucking in the 4700 block of West Hacienda Avenue.

"They arrived to find two semis on fire," Deputy Chief John Steinbeck told News 3. "It eventually involved two semis, two box trucks and a trailer. One of the problems was a fuel tank that was breached and they had to lay down a lot of foam to keep the fire from spreading."

There were no injuries in the fire that was battled by nearly 40 firefighters.

The loss damage was estimated at $400,000, Steinbeck said.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
