ENID, Okla. — Enid Fire Department responded to a fire in a trash truck at 1:12 p.m. Friday at 2719 E. Eucalyptus.

Enid Fire Marshal Ken Helms said the City of Enid trash truck caught fire from what appeared to be hydraulic fluid leaking onto a hot surface; the truck cab was burnt completely.

The driver was not injured.

“Normally when we have a fire in a trash truck, it’s something that got hot in the trash portion,” he said. “But this time, the cab of the truck was burnt up and the trash portion was saved.”

Two fire engines and one command vehicle responded to the scene.
