Fourteen large semi-style dump trucks were destroyed late Tuesday afternoon as fire gutted a building at Draper Trucking, 400 N. Main St., Holland, according to a Holland Volunteer Fire Department official.

Crews from 18 companies in the Southtowns and nearby Cattaraugus and Wyoming counties helped fight the blaze, which started shortly after 6 p.m. in a metal-sided pole barn, said First Assistant Chief Robert Hathaway.

Their efforts were hampered by the limited amount of water available through the community’s fire hydrants, Hathaway said. Several pumper trucks drew water from Cazenovia Creek and nearby ponds, he added.

The blaze was under control in about an hour, Hathaway said, and did not spread to other structures. There were no injuries, he noted.

The cause of the fire and a damage estimate have not yet been determined.
