HARVARD – A vehicle fire briefly shut down a downtown Harvard road Sunday morning, a fire official said.

The Harvard Fire Protection District responded about 5:30 a.m. Sunday to 505 W. Diggins St., Chief Steve Harter said. A Ford pickup truck was on fire in the driveway.

The owner called the fire in, and Harter suspects mechanical problems were the cause.

It took about five minutes to put the fire out, Harter said, and West Diggins Street was briefly closed by Harvard police.

There were no injuries.
