Fire destroyed a vehicle that was stuck in the mud on Sunday.
Milton and Bedford Fire units responded to 93 Bucks Run Road after a call reporting a vehicle on fire around 1 p.m. Crews located a Chevrolet truck on fire off the roadway.
The owner of the vehicle, Chris Rhodes of Louisville, had tried to get the truck out of the mud and had put too much pressure on the vehicle, causing the engine or transmission to catch fire. The fire spread to the fuel tank which ruptured.
The truck was a total loss, but there were no injuries in the fire.
