Firefighters blame rat’s nest for truck blaze

Firefighters said a nest built by rodents on part of a pickup truck’s engine heated up and started a fire under the hood as the driver pulled into a parking lot. Ossipee Fire Chief Mike Brownell said a woman was driving the pickup Wednesday morning. It hadn’t been driven in a while. WMWV-FM radio reported police and workers in a garage used fire extinguishers to put the fire out. No one was hurt.

Brownell said the nest was built on top of the pickup’s engine manifold.
