Two semi trucks caught fire Friday in the loading dock of the Indio Home Depot, but firefighters were able to get the non-injury blaze under control within half an hour.

The fire broke out just after 4:30 p.m. at the Hope Depot within the Indio Towne Center at 42100 Jackson Street.

Two big rigs in the rear loading dock were found ablaze, but firefighters contained the flames at 4:57 p.m., with damage to the trucks and the loading dock, April Newman of the Riverside County Fire Department said.
