PLYMOUTH (WWJ) – An unusual situation in the city of Plymouth where a fire truck goes up in flames inside of the fire station.

It’s not everyday you hear about firefighting equipment go up in flames.But that’s exactly what happened in the city of Plymouth.

Around 4 a.m. Sunday, City Manager Paul Sincock tells WWJ, that police officers inside the fire station thought they smelled smoke.

“We got out into the fire apparatus bay, there was heavy smoke in that area, they immediately notified the fire department and they began a response,” said Sincock.

“We had a response not only from our Plymouth city station but also our sister station Northville city and Plymouth Township Fire and our EMS partner, Huron Valley Ambulance.”

Sincock said that damage was limited to one truck and to the structure of the building.

“We’re making arrangements to move the rest of our equipment to another location to be able to provide regular fire service to the citizens of our community,” he added.

The Michigan State Police Fire Marshall has been asked to investigate.
