Emergency Services personnel responded to the area of 2nd Avenue East at 13th Street East, Owen Sound for a pick up truck which had caught fire.  The Owen Sound Fire Department arrived at 8:30 p.m. to find the truck fully engulfed, however they were able to extinguish the fire and protect a business which had been exposed based on the truck’s location.  The Owen Sound police investigation revealed that a family had been travelling in the late model vehicle, when the smell of rubber burning and subsequent smoke entering the cabin of the truck caused the driver to pull over.  The three occupants along with their dog exited the vehicle prior to it catching on fire.  Fortunately a passing motorist was flagged down and assisted by calling 9-1-1.  That same citizen assisted the family get to shelter at a local chiropractic office as one of the occupants began to have medical issues.  Staff at that office then assisted the family until Grey County Paramedics attended and treated the local woman before transporting her to hospital.  There is nothing to suggest foul play in this matter.  OSFD Captain Wayne Flood stated “The cause of the fire is believed to be electrical”.
