Unmanned Fire Engine Rolls Into Home

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – A parked Spokane Fire Department engine with nobody at the wheel rolled into a home where firefighters were making an aid call.

Fire Chief Bobby Williams says the truck had been parked about 100 yards from the home Wednesday night. Shortly after medics walked inside, they heard the crash.

KXLY-TV reports the engine knocked down porch supports and punched a hole in the living room wall.

No one was hurt. Investigators are trying to figure out how the runaway truck made the trip down the street, over a curb and hit the home.
