LA CROSSE, Wis. -

At least one garbage truck suffered severe damage Saturday afternoon after a fire in the parking lot at the Waste Management office in La Crosse.

The office is located at 415 Island Street.

A News 8 photographer captured video of an employee at the office trying to put out the fire with an extinguisher before firefighters arrived at the scene.

Firefighters were there moments later and appeared to be able to contain most of the damage to the one vehicle. Two garbage trucks parked on both sides of the damaged vehicle appeared to sustain only minor exterior damage.

No one was injured in the fire and the cause is still under investigation.
