A fire apparatus caught fire during an emergency response yesterday in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The local NBC affiliate (http://bit.ly/1vKvKZg) reported that a Montgomery County Fire and Rescue truck was responding to a commercial fire when mechanical issues forced it to pull over. Then the rig’s engine and cab area caught fire.
No firefighters were injured. Another apparatus helped extinguish the fire.
Firefighters managed to save a majority of the truck’s equipment, which will be tested before being put onto a new fire engine.
