Equipment catches fire in the middle of the woods, causing problems

Local News

HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — A piece of heavy equipment on fire off of County Road 95 in Houston County posed an interesting problem Thursday morning.

That thing is called a skid steer, and it was about 500 feet in the woods when it went up in flames.

The woods were too thick to drive fire trucks through so they had the task of connecting enough hose to get to it.

Firefighters with the help of the Houston County Emergency Management Agency were able to knock it down quickly after overcoming the logistics issue.
