Caught on camera: Fire engine burns on I-74 in Illinois

Watch brief video of fire

A reserve engine from the Normal (IL) Fire Department was destroyed by fire Wednesday morning on I-74 in the Knoxville (IL) Fire Protection District.

Robert Connelly, The Register-Mail:

A firefighter from the Normal Fire Department was driving the reserve truck from Alexis Fire Equipment back to Normal, followed by a vehicle driven by another Normal firefighter. Normal Assistant Fire Chief Doug Barnett told The Register-Mail the firefighter saw smoke coming from the rear of the vehicle and pulled over.

“Looked like it may have started near one of the rear wheels, so maybe a brake or tire issue,” Barnett said.

He further said the 2004 fire engine had framework repairs before going to Alexis to have its firefighting equipment reinstalled.
