A water main break caused a sinkhole to open up under the Colorado Springs’ newest engine, reports KRDO.com.

The fire department posted to Facebook, “While parked in front of a reported structure fire at 4am, the Engine 10 crew suddenly felt the engine sink into the roadway. They found that a sinkhole had formed under the engine due to a water main break under the road. Thankfully, no one on the crew was injured. With only minor damage to the bumper, Engine 10 was able to get back in service by 10am. Engine 10 is the CSFD’s newest¬†Pierce Mfg engine that went into service on January 22, 2021.”
