ROCHESTER — Fire officials are trying to figure out how the chief’s SUV caught fire Tuesday afternoon.
Assistant Chief Mark Dupuis said Tuesday morning that Chief Mark Klose was driving the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe on Winkley Farm Lane just after 1 p.m. when the SUV started losing power.
By the time firefighters arrived, the front end of the vehicle was engulfed in flames.
Dupuis said that after the fire was extinguished the Tahoe was towed to the Department of Public Works where officials are working with the city’s insurance company to determine the fire’s cause.
Dupuis said the SUV was worth about $33,000 before radios and other equipment were installed.
Nobody was injured.
