BALTIMORE — Yes, it's as ironic as it sounds — mechanical issues caused a Baltimore fire engine to catch fire in its quarters Friday, fire department spokesman Ian Brennan said.
Engine 50 had just returned from a call when the fire started, he said, and the flames were quickly contained. The engine operates out of a firehouse at 1601 Broening Highway and services more than 20 neighborhoods in the area, according to the department's website.
