Truck fire temporarily closes Ridge Road

Ridge Road was closed for about an hour and a half Wednesday morning after a truck caught fire, a fire official said.

Spring Grove Fire Protection District crews were dispatched at 10:17 a.m. to the 3000 block of Ridge Road in response to a call about a fire, Lt. Todd Robel said. There were no injuries and a damage estimate was not immediately available, he said.

Although the cause of the fire is under investigation, fire officials think the engine compartment was involved. The fire was under control within five minutes, Robel said.
