SCFR Responds to Vehicle Fire

Wednesday, July 25, 2012  SCFR responded to a report of a vehicle fire on The Trace inside Land Between the Lakes. District Chief Sheets arrived on scene and advised the vehicle was fully involved. Responding apparatus was Eng. 129 and Eng. 4. The cause of the fire was from a lawn mower blade that the vehicle struck in the roadway piercing the gas tank and sparking the fire. The vehicle was a total loss.
