Stolen semi exploded at Nebraska park, authorities say

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Last week, Merrick County sheriff’s deputies responded to a loud explosion at Stranburg Park, just south of Central City.

About 3:40 a.m. om Thursday, deputies found a semi engulfed in flames.

Investigators think the trailer was stolen from Hordville, a village about 7 miles to the east, the sheriff’s office said.

The Merrick County Sheriff’s Office and Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office are asking anyone with information to contact their offices.

The investigation is still ongoing.
