A truck on fire at a convenience store summoned Chillicothe Firefighters to the 2600 block of North Washington Street Monday evening. The call came in about 9:40 and the fire department arrived 4 minutes later to find the passenger compartment and engine bay of the pick-up truck fully engulfed in flames. The truck was parked away from the building and the gas pumps. Approx. 400 gallons of water was used to put out the fire.
The truck was a total loss. The owner was not present and there was nothing left to try and verify who the owner of the vehicle belonged to. A towing agency was notified.
