Truck Fire Extinguished in Southampton

Southampton Fire Department was called to a vehicle fire along County Road 39 Thursday afternoon and found a truck, parked against a house, in flames.

Chris Brenner, the 2nd assistance chief, said the first fire unit to arrive on scenic called in a working vehicle fire at 1560 County Road 39. After the fire was quickly extinguished, firefighters checked the house to see if the fire got inside, he said. Though the house did not catch fire, the heat and flames did melt the vinyl siding on the rear of the building.

No injuries were reported, Brenner said.
