Chillicothe Fire Fighters Respond To Truck Fire and Explosion

The Chillicothe Fire Department was called to an explosion and fire of a truck at 806 Thompson.  The call came in at about 12:15 and the fire crew arrived in about seven minutes to find a truck driver using a garden hose on a tire that had been burning.  The report states the driver noticed the ABS light before pulling up at the location.  While unloading he heard a loud explosion under the trailer and found a tire had blown and was on fire due to the heat from the brakes.  The fire department checked for any other fires and found none.  They were on the scene for about 10 minutes.
