Vehicle Fire Occurs In Yankton

A minor pickup fire occurred at Jr’s Oasis Wednesday morning in Yankton.

Yankton Assistant Fire Chief Larry Nickels says that crews were called out by dispatch on a report of a pickup fire near the gas pumps.

Nickels says that the fire was exclusive to the fuse panel of the pickup. A Yankton Police Department officer put out the minor fire immediately upon arrival with his fire extinguisher.

Nickels adds that when something like this happens, “everyone gets excited due to the nature of the call.”

After the fire, the pickup was not drivable and had to be towed away.
