Truck fire

Community Featured Online First

No one was hurt when fire destroyed a pickup truck late Monday morning.

Jimmy Wright owns the truck that was parked in front of his garage. He was intending to back it into his garage to change a light bulb but he smelled something and coasted the vehicle away from the garage when it caught fire.

Members of the Pictou Fire Department responded to the fire at about 11:30 a.m. and were winding up the call in about an hour. A public works crew brought gravel to absorb the fuel that leaked from the truck. (Goodwin photo)
