Pickup Truck Destroyed After Catching Fire

Lincoln Fire and Rescue battle an early morning fire with a pickup truck. 

Captain Daren Merryman says around 2:30 this morning, a 1980's ford pickup caught fire near 48th and Highway 2.

He says a leaky carburetor caused gas to overflow onto the engine…starting the blaze.

Merryman says most of the vehicle's contents were burned up.

No injuries were reported.
