A fire caused by a possible fuel leak destroys a piece of heavy equipment owned by Saline County.

Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that a crew from Rural Fire District #1 was sent to the 6300 block of E. Water Well Road on Tuesday afternoon after a John Deere excavator burst into flames.

Deputies say county workers were improving a ditch in the area when the fire began. The excavator is valued at $50,000 and is listed as a total loss.

No one was injured in the incident that occurred on Tuesday afternoon around 2:43pm.
