MERLIN, Ore --- Firefighters with ODF and Rural Metro Fire responded to a truck fire on Brookside Boulevard, just south of the Grants Pass Airport.
When crews got to the scene, they found a pickup truck fully engulfed in flames. The fire also spread to nearby grass. Crews say it looks like the truck was moving while it was burning, because there was a trail of fire left in the middle of the road up to where the truck was found. The driver left the scene.
This truck fire was a few hundred feet away from the 2013 Brookside Fire. That fire also started because of a burning vehicle. The 2013 Brookside Fire destroyed one structure and threatened dozens of others.
Firefighters say thankfully there was no wind and crews were able to quickly put out the truck fire.
