Crane fire in Germany
A four axle Liebherr All Terrain crane caught fire on a country road outside Magdeburg, North East Germany this week.
The crane was travelling on a country road between Gross and Klein Rodensleben to the west of Magdeburg when the driver noticed flames coming from the crane's engine compartment. He was able to pull over to the side of the road and leave the crane cab before it went up in flames.
More than 50 firefighters managed to extinguish the fire within the hour with heavy foam and water. No one was hurt in the incident.
