Fire destroys Rantoul man's truck


A Rantoul man’s truck was destroyed when it caught fire Friday morning.

Fire Chief Ken Waters said the owner, Jacob Culbertson, 932 North Drive, had started the truck and went back inside his home. He later looked out and saw the front of the 2000 Dodge Ram pickup truck on fire.

Waters said the truck was a total loss. Firefighters were called at 4:43 a.m.

Although parked just 10 feet from the house, the house was not damaged, Waters said.
