HARRISON, Maine — A Harrison fire truck rolled over Sunday morning and was damaged, but the driver escaped without injury.
Town Manager Bud Finch said in a press release the fire truck had gone to deal with a carbon monoxide detector sounding off just before noon at a home on a private road off Route 117. The detector was faulty, and the driver of the fire truck noticed problems with the brakes as he was leaving the private road.
Finch said the driver tried to bring the truck safely to a stop, but it rolled over on to its side and had major damage. The driver suffered scratches from broken glass but was not injured.
Finch said the accident will be investigated, but snowy road conditions and a mechanical problem appear to be the cause.
