BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities near Beloit are still trying to figure out how a fire destroyed four garbage trucks this week -- but they've ruled out arson or any other foul play.  

Two trash vehicles were engulfed in flames, and the other two were partially ablaze when firefighters arrived at Rock Disposal in the town of Beloit on Tuesday.  

Officials said the blaze apparently started in a cab of one garbage truck, and a fifth truck will need minor repairs. Total damage was estimated at $1 million.  

Rock Disposal has about 25 garbage trucks in its fleet.
