WESTPORT, Conn. — A burning pickup truck shut down Weston Road in Westport for about a half-hour Friday morning, fire officials said.

Firefighters were called to the area of Weston Road near Ford Road at 11:37 a.m. Upon arrival, the pickup truck’s engine compartment was fully engulfed in flames, Assistant Fire Chief Larry Conklin said. The roadway was closed by Westport police as firefighters worked to douse the blaze, he said.

Once the fire was extinguished, the truck was towed from the scene. No one was injured in the incident, Conklin said.
