A fire in a construction trailer at a new Zone 7 desalinization plant at the corner of Santa Rita Road and Stoneridge Drive destroyed the trailer but was extinguished before spreading to the newly-built plant, itself.
Firefighters from the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department received their first call at 8:27 p.m. from a motorist who spotted flames and smoke coming from the trailer.
Four pieces of equipment, an ambulance and Pleasanton police were on the scene in minutes, battling the blaze and controlling traffic at the busy intersection.
Fire fighters had to force their way into the trailer before they could attack the rapidly building fire just 40 feet east of the desalinization plant.
The construction trailer was a total loss.
