HUNTINGBURG — Members of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department responded Tuesday afternoon when a truck fire was reported at Sixth and Main streets.
The vehicle at the center of the 1:42 p.m. run was a Louisville food delivery service’s box truck, according to Fire Chief Scott Patberg. The truck had pulled into a vacant lot in the southwest quadrant of the intersection when the department arrived.
Patberg said there was no fire, but water was sprayed on the truck’s overheated brakes to cool the components.
One truck and eight firefighters were on the scene until arrangements were made for the truck to be towed and repaired.
The Huntingburg Police Department assisted.
