One of the Fargo Fire Department’s (ND) first-line fire engines caught fire while it was parked in the Public Safety Building.
Assistant Fire Chief Leroy Skarloken said the pumper truck had been parked for about three hours while firefighters were in a class. The fire started in the engine compartment of the 2006-model fire truck.
Skarloken says he thinks the fire was electrical in nature, but that it’s still under investigation. He said the department plans to have the truck repaired. Fire trucks with the Fargo Fire Department typically are replaced every 20 years.
