Magda Lira, who lives nearby on Ednamary Way, said her roommate woke her up around 3 a.m. to alert her of the fire. She said police evacuated the apartment building nearest the blaze.
Lira said she believes the pickup had been parked in the same spot behind the Office Depot for about a year, and assumed it was abandoned.
Wylie reported that the truck had been parked for about two months, but said she, too, suspected it was abandoned.
