Fire destroys Ireland-area ATV

From Local Sources

IRELAND — Units of the Ireland Volunteer Fire Department responded to a property south of Ireland Tuesday night when an all-terrain vehicle burst into flames.

Daniel Crosby had worked on a 2010 Polaris Ranger RZR 800 S before operating it and accidentally rolling it onto its side at 5107 W. 150N, according to Fire Chief Stan Seifert.

Seifert said the ATV’s gas tank ignited when the machine rolled. Crosby was able to remove his seat belt and get clear of the ATV prior to the 9:07 p.m. call to the fire department, according to Seifert.

Crosby declined emergency medical attention at the scene.

Two trucks and 14 firefighters were on the scene 30 minutes.
