Fire damaged a pickup truck about 4 miles north of Jamestown on Thursday, said Chief Ben Maulding of the Jamestown Rural Fire Department.

A Jamestown man driving south on U.S. Highway 281/52 experienced mechanical difficulties in the engine compartment of a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado pickup, Maulding said. The driver pulled over to check the problem and by that time the engine compartment was on fire.
