EAST PEORIA (WEEK) -- East Peoria firefighters were battling a blaze Tuesday after a UPS deliver truck caught fire.

Firefighters were called to the scene at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Camp Street UPS location.

A deputy chief at the scene said a cause has not been determined, but they believe the fire may have started near the truck's engine.

The fire was confined to the delivery truck, and no one was injured.

"Crews were able to quickly determine that the fire was confined to a truck on the backside of the building," Deputy Chief Ryan Beck said, "the fire had not gotten into the structure. Some smoke was able to get inside the building."

EPFD Deputy Chief Beck would not say how many, if any, packages were lost in the fire, adding that he wasn't sure if any were in the truck at the time.
