Garbage Truck Set On Fire

An East Texas business owner wants to know who's responsible for burning his garbage truck.  The truck, owned by DS Disposal Service in Gresham, was set on fire Saturday.  Smith County fire investigators expect arson.

The company had just two trucks to service 1,400 customers.  Owner Steven Vance said they'll do their best to keep up.

"We'll continue on with the truck we've got, we'll run until midnight if we have to to get everything taken care of and hopefully we can get something taken care of with this one where we're getting off at a regular time and everybody is picked up at a decent time," said Vance.

Vance estimates the trucks value at around $40,000.  The company does have insurance.

If you have any information on the fire, you're asked to call the Smith County Sheriff's Department.
