Truck fire extinguished quickly near Earlville

Posted by wlpo on August 9, 2015

Although firemen responded, it was the chief extinguishing the last flames in a truck engine Saturday on the east side of Earlville.

Larry Todd is Earlville’s fire chief. He says two Yorkville men were in a panel truck on Route 34 early Saturday afternoon when the truck lost power. Smoke emerged from the engine and the men pulled onto the shoulder just south of “The Manor”. Chief Todd says the 2 began pouring water onto the flames with Todd arriving to assist.

Todd says the fire melted wires and the shift cable, so the truck was towed. The truck is fixable.
