Nobody knows yet why a Ford pickup owned by the state caught on fire around midnight Saturday. The truck was parked in the 'Tipton Ford' garage in Nacogdoches when the fire broke out.
The dealership manager says the truck is not part of a recall where a 'faulty cruise control' has caused spontaneous fires in some of these trucks.
Fortunately the fire did not spread. The fire melted some diagnostic equipment and plastics on nearby cars.
