BLUEFIELD — Bluefield firefighters responded at about 8 a.m. this morning to a report of a vehicle fire in the Bluefield Plaza parking lot. A 1995 Ford F-150 truck with a snow plow caught fire in the area of the parking lot where the U.S. Post Office is located.

“The cab and the engine compartment were destroyed,” Bluefield firefighter Adrian Conner said. “The undercarriage and the plow are still OK, but the rest of the truck was destroyed in the fire.”

Firefighters from the Cumberland Road station responded to the fire. Conner said that the driver was a contractor working to clear the lot for the owner of the shopping center. The fire was not near any of the buildings in the plaza. The plaza is located on Cumberland Road.
