This (Thursday) morning Fort Worth Fire Department tweeted a picture of its command unit on fire. The vehicle was destroyed at the scene of a train derailment and fire involving ethanol. No firefighters were hurt, but the tweet didn’t explain how the vehicle caught fire. We get that answer from Brian Roth at KXAS-TV:
Meanwhile, a Fort Worth Fire Department mobile command unit responding to the scene caught fire after its tower camera came into contact with overhead power lines, firefighters said. No one was hurt, but the truck was destroyed.
Bought in 2008, it cost $1.25 million, the department said.\
