Pickup truck fire nearly sparks forest fire

July 1, 2011 4:24:21 AM PDT
A burning pickup nearly started a forest fire in northeast Harris County. About 1am, firefighters found a pickup on fire near some Woods at Garrett and CE King Parkway. Firefighters had to move fast, because the dry brush near that truck had started to ignite. Eventually they got it under control and prevented a wildfire from starting.

Meantime, a fire truck on the way to that fire was involved in a wreck, but it was not damaged and no firefighters were hurt.
