ST. HENRY — Units of the St. Henry Volunteer Fire Department responded to a truck on fire Sunday evening.

Fire Chief Steve Eckert said the 7:35 p.m. call was reported as a vehicle engulfed in flames that were threatening power lines.

Firefighters arrived at the Todd and Tangela Hayes residence at 10116 S. 100W to find a 2001 Ford F-250 service-style truck engulfed in flames. The department extinguished the fire and there was no other damage reported, according to Eckert.

The chief said the fire that totaled the truck was likely caused by an electrical malfunction.

Four trucks and 13 firefighters were on the scene 35 minutes.
