Westport Truck Fire Extinguished Quickly
WESTPORT — A truck fire in Westport early Thursday morning was quickly put out by firefighters, saving the nearby home from damage, according to the town's fire department.
The Westport Fire Department stated in a Facebook post at 7:39 a.m. Thursday that crews responded to Rock Street earlier in the morning for a reported truck fire.
When crews arrived they found a truck engulfed in flames close to a second vehicle and a home, according to the department.
Two firefighters with the first arriving engine company managed to quickly contain and extinguish the truck, which they said was "fully involved" with fire.
The house did not sustain any damage, although there was some heat damage to the second vehicle, the post noted.
In total, two engines and the deputy fire chief responded to the fire, along with off-duty and on call fire crews as well as Westport police.
The cause of the fire is not thought to be suspicious.
