Fire destroys pickup on Bremond Avenue

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A fire has destroyed a pickup which started inside the engine, even though the engine was not running, on Bremond Avenue in Lufkin Wednesday morning.

Lufkin Fire Capt. Chris Clemens said the call came in around 11 a.m. and it took firefighters two minutes to arrive on scene and only one minute to put out the fire.

The homeowner, who did not want to give his name, said he heard a loud "boom" and went outside to see his uncle's Ford F-150 on fire.

Clemens said the cause of the fire is not known.
