An SUV used as a Battalion Chief vehicle caught fire inside a garage at the Fairbanks Fire Department's downtown headquarters over the weekend, officials said.
The Ford Expedition wasn't running when it caught fire around 5 p.m. on Saturday, said Fairbanks city communications director Teal Soden. The cause of the fire isn't yet known. Nobody was injured in the blaze.
"I think that there's going to be quite a bit of cleanup," Soden said.
After the engine caught fire, the building's fire alarms went off, which activated the sprinkler system. The building's alarms are tied into the emergency dispatch system, Soden said, so dispatchers sent a crew from the nearby Aurora fire station.
