The Attleboro Fire Department said in a news release that around 7 p.m. Monday, crews responded to reports of fire at an industrial property on Pleasant Steet.

At the scene, firefighters found four tractor-trailers on fire, the department said. The tractor-trailers were filled with cardboard, which fueled the fire.

It took approximately two hours to get the fire under control, the department said, and crews stayed on scene until around 1 a.m. They returned to the scene of the fire Tuesday morning to wet down smoldering areas.


No injuries caused by the fire were reported, the department said. Firefighters are still investigating what caused the fire.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the Pleasant Street property belongs to Umicore, a global materials company with an office in the vicinity. Umicore was not involved in the fire and Boston.com regrets the error.
