Colo. Fire Truck Gets Stuck in Hole

DENVER --

It's not everyday you see a fire truck stuck in a hole.

But that's what happened Tuesday in Denver.

The truck was rounding a corner at 19th Avenue and Logan Street when it started sinking.

The more firefighters tried to drive out, the more the truck got stuck.

At parts, the hole was 4 feet deep.

It took a big tow truck to get the 30-ton fire truck out.

A spokeswoman for Denver Public Works, said a "freak leak" in an underground storm sewer line had weakened the pavement.

When the heavy truck drove over it, the pavement collapsed.

No one was injured.
