CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Cape Fire Department responded to a truck on fire Sunday at a gas station on Sprigg Street Cape Girardeau.

Fire fighters say that a squirrel's nest was under the hood of the truck. After someone drove the truck the nest caught fire. This was near a gas pump at a gas station.

Concerned that the truck fire might spread to the gas pump, a gas station worker started to extinguish the fire.

Cape Fire Department crews came and made sure the fire was put out.

The engine compartment had fire damage to it along with the hood.
