A truck trailer parked behind the CVS on Wisconsin Ave. in Tenleytown caught fire Monday at about 5:30 p.m.
No one was hurt and nearby businesses, including CVS, were not closed. But the smoky fire, as well as water from fire hoses and emergency vehicles parked on Wisconsin Ave., led to traffic delays in the area.
Police on the scene said no one was in the truck at the time and there were no injuries.
Materials in the truck apparently caught fire, police said. When firefighters pried open the top and the side door of the trailer, smoke poured out - followed by smoke and a few flames.
