Pickup destroyed by fire

Monday is already off to a busy start for Emporia firefighters.


A crew was called to the intersection of South and Prairie at 5:45 am after a pickup caught fire. The truck was fully involved when firefighters arrived a short time later. The crew put the fire out quickly.

Battalion Chief Rex Fisher says the truck apparently stalled and rolled backward, igniting the engine compartment. Trevor Brownback owned the truck. No injuries were reported.
