Train bridge goes up in flames
Guthrie fire crews continue to work grass fires this summer, including a fire north of Guthrie on Friday afternoon.
The Guthrie Fire Department needed five units, along with assistance from Coyle, Mulhall, Crescent and Woodcrest, to put out a fire on Beemer Road.
EMI provided a tanker while District 2 brought out a dozer to create a fire line.
Firefighters battled the fire that torched the old train bridge and the surrounding area.
Earlier in the day, Guthrie extinguish a grass fire in the median of I-35 just south of Seward Road.
Guthrie brush trucks needing repair
The Guthrie Fire Department ran into a few issues with equipment on Friday.
Brush 1 suffered a tire puncture from an apparent railroad spike while working the fire on Beemer Road. Meanwhile, Brush 2 suffered a fire under the hood en route to a fire around Highway 33 and Post.
The fire under the hood may have been the result of a bad fuse.
