BFD responds to vehicle fire at Assembly Hall

The Bloomington Fire Department responded to a vehicle fire at about noon yesterday outside Assembly Hall.

BFD public information officer Brandon Hudson said the fire was under control within four minutes of BFD’s arrival.

The vehicle, from Maxim Crane Works, was involved in renovations currently underway at Assembly Hall.

The vehicle’s operator said he was working at the job site and turned around and discovered the fire. He said no one was in the vehicle at the time of the fire and he does not know the cause.

BFD confirmed there were no injuries. The department does not yet have an estimate of the damage.

Hudson said BFD stayed on the scene until 12:43 p.m. Investigators determined the fire originated in the cab of the vehicle, he said, and due to the extent of damage, the cause remains undetermined.
