(ATLANTIC) Atlantic firemen doused a pickup fire at 801 Olive Street this morning.
Atlantic Fire Chief Mark McNees said when firemen arrived on scene the engine compartment was fully engulfed.
“They had been using it (the pickup) earlier in the day and they arrived home and it had been sitting there for about an hour. They did have it plugged in, it was a diesel, and right now it looks like it was an electrical short that probably started the fire,” said McNees. “The pickup was a total loss.”
McNees said the vehicle was parked in a metal car port away from the home and there was no other damage.
