Plow truck fire likely caused by a pile of acorns
No one was hurt when the plow truck, which was not in service, pulled over with a fire in the engine.
Hammond said he was told it was a state truck, and he believes it was being taken to be sold at auction.
While he has seen fires started by food stockpiles by rodents in the past, Hammond said this is the first time he has ever seen one start a fire in a moving truck.Hammond said where the truck pulled over, which was by mile marker 109, is only a couple hundred feet past Raymond into Candia.
Raymond was first on the scene, followed by a truck from Candia.
