LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — Firefighters in Lowell found themselves battling a fire involving one of their own vehicles inside one of their own fire stations.
Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Winward says the truck caught fire just after 1 a.m. Thursday inside the Lawrence Street firehouse, causing extensive damage to the engine area and putting the vehicle out of commission at least temporarily.
Winward tells The Sun (http://bit.ly/LbQZKj ) that the fire appears to be accidental but the cause remains under investigation.
The truck was quickly taken outside the firehouse and towed away later in the morning. There was no damage to the firehouse and no injuries.
The city has a spare truck it will use in the damaged vehicle's place.
