Truck, trailer destroyed in fire

A fire started in the engine compartment of a 2007 Ford diesel pickup Monday evening, destroying the vehicle and a cattle trailer it was hitched to, Goodhue County Sheriff's Office reported.

Goodhue Fire Department responded to 240th Street in Belvidere Township at about 8:20 p.m. The vehicles were parked in a shed, though the owner, Brian Schafer, was able to get the pickup and trailer out before much damage was done to the shed.

The pickup and trailer ($95,000) were a total loss.
