Fire engine gets stuck in sinkhole

INDIANAPOLIS – Crews needed a couple hours to free an Indianapolis fire engine after it got stuck in a sinkhole on a city street.

The fire department said the engine was on its way to a reported house fire when the truck’s rear driver’s side wheels sank into the pavement up to its frame.

Fire Capt. Rita Reith said the hole was about 4 feet by 8 feet. She said no firefighters were hurt.

WTHR-TV reported (http://bit.ly/1gJf9Lp ) crews had to remove the water stored in the engine in order to lift it from the hole.

Reith said the reported fire in an unoccupied house was small and was quickly extinguished.
