Riverhead firefighters doused a truck fire Monday morning in Baiting Hollow that charred a Dodge pickup.
Volunteers responded around 10 a.m. to Fox Hill Village, near Giorgio’s restaurant, to a fully involved pickup. About 40 firefighters came to the scene of the fire, which luckily was not inside a garage but rather in a driveway.
“It was easy to contain, but difficult to put out because of the fuel,” said first assistant fire chief Kevin Brooks.
Riverhead fire marshals are investigating how the fire started.
