From the Wareham Fire Department (verbatim):

This morning at 707 AM, Group 1 responded to RT 195 East prior to exit 21 for a report of a tractor trailer unit on fire.

Upon arrival, E1 (duty crew) found a trash truck with the tractor fully engulfed in flames and all occupants out safely. They began to put the fire out and requested additional assets to the scene.

Chief Rowley (C1), Assistant Chief Haskell (C2), E2 from Station-2 and Tanker 1 from Station-4 responded to the scene.

The fire was knocked down quickly and companies are currently on scene waiting for the tow company to remove the vehicle from the scene. This is still an active scene.
