Fire engine catches fire on way to car crash

A fire engine caught fire in Prince George's County Monday while on its way to a car crash, a county fire department spokesman said.

The small fire broke out in the engine compartment of a truck from the West Lanham Hill station about 5:30 p.m. while the crew was en route to the scene on the Capital Beltway.

The fire engine stopped on a ramp leading from Route 50 to the Beltway and the flames were extinguished quickly, spokesman Mark E. Brady said.

No one was injured, and the fire engine is to be taken to a repair facility, Brady said.
