|A Chillicothe Fire Department report shows that a pickup truck, being worked on, was destroyed by fire early Monday.|
Firefighters were called to 67-28 U-S Highway 65, the property of David and Jena Eskew. Upon arrival, a Chillicothe fire department spokesman said a 1997 Ford F350 pickup was on fire, inside a metal garage.
The blaze burned in the engine compartment and cab of the pickup with no fire damage noted to the building; although there was heavy smoke damage inside.
The property loss was listed at an estimated five thousand dollars.
The fire department report noted the owner had done some work Sunday evening on the fuel system; then connected a charger in an effort to restore the batterys' charge. He went to bed; got up later, looked out a window and noticed fire.
There were no injuries.
The Chula fire protection district also was alerted to the early morning call.
