Yet another AT crane fire

A two axle All Terrain crane caught fire in Kozlany, in the Czech Republic last week, causing the tyres to explode and hurtle flaming towards fire fighters.

Thankfully the tyres narrowly missed the firefighters although two of them suffered minor injuries in the blaze with took almost an hour to extinguish. The job was complicated by damage caused to overhead power lines, which had to de-energised before the firefighters could get started.
