Fire destroys parked pickup
A neighbor heard a loud boom before spotting a pickup engulfed in flames early Wednesday outside a northwest Rochester apartment complex, according to the fire department.
The $6,000 truck was a total loss. The cause is under investigation, according to Assistant Fire Marshal Larry Mueller. The truck was last driven at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday by a South St. Paul man who was visiting the apartment complex in the 800 block of 40th Street Northwest, Mueller said.
No injuries were reported.
