JAMESTOWN - An older truck was destroyed by fire on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 8, said Brian Paulson, fire chief for the Jamestown Rural Fire Department. The department was dispatched at 1:05 p.m. to 4150 85th Ave. SE.

Paulson said some individuals were working on another vehicle near the old truck and placed some hot sparkplugs in a box, which is what started the fire.

Four vehicles and eight firefighters were at the scene for about 20 minutes, Paulson said. No injuries were reported.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
