Fargo Fire Department responds to truck blaze

The Fargo Fire Department said a resident’s quick 911 call prevented a truck fire from turning into a garage fire.

Firefighters were dispatched to 820 8th St. N. about 5:55 p.m. Monday.

A Fire Department report said Chuck Whitaker was working on a pickup in a garage when the truck caught fire.

Firefighters, who arrived on the scene within minutes of being called, were able to knock down the blaze and push the vehicle out of the garage before the structure caught fire.

“A quick call to 911 prevented this from becoming a bigger fire with larger property loss,” the Fire Department report said.
