Police & sheriff news: Pickup truck fire near Frazee, thefts and vandalism reported


Frazee firefighters responded quickly Tuesday afternoon, June 2, and knocked down an engine fire in a Ford F-350 crew cab pickup truck on County Road 10.

The truck had four occupants -- members of a concrete construction work crew headed back to Menahga -- and all got out safely. Firefighters used a hose to smother the engine fire with a foaming agent, according to Frazee Fire Chief Joe Nelson.

“We actually did a pretty good job on the truck, all four tires were intact, that’s really rare for a vehicle fire,” he said.
