Park Rapids firefighters responded Tuesday to their third vehicle fire in 2009.

They say that's not a good start to the New Year.


Shortly after 1 p.m., a truck owned by Kevin Byer of rural Osage burst into flames.

"I was out in the garage working when the horn went off," Byer said. He'd returned an hour earlier from snow plowing in the 2002 Ford truck. He said there were no problems with the truck while he was working.
