Westport Firefighters Knock Out Truck Fire

The driver of a Ford Ranger pickup was not injured Saturday after his truck caught fire in Westport.

Shortly before 5 p.m., Westport firefighters were called to Old Road and Bauer Place on the report of a vehicle fire. Upon arrival, they found a pickup fully engulfed in flames, Assistant Fire Chief Robert Kepchar said.

Using a preconnected hose line from one of the engines, crews quickly doused the flames. Firefighters then helped the owner of the pickup recover some small tools that were not damaged in the blaze.

Westporter Bill Senia captured the incident on video and shared it with the department. The last fire unit left the area by 6:01 p.m.
