No one was injured in a vehicle fire on Loop Road in Rindge on Monday morning, though the vehicle is a total loss.

A nearby garage also caught fire, Fire Chief Rick Donovan said, but the damage was cosmetic.

The owner of the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck told Donovan that his truck was experiencing electrical problems, a likely cause of the fire.

“He stated he put in a bigger fuse because his truck kept popping a fuse,” Donovan said.

Firefighters from Rindge and Jaffrey were dispatched to the scene around 7:05 a.m.

Donovan said Jaffrey fire assisted as they are an automatic mutual aid call for the Little Michigan area of Rindge.

The fire took less than thirty minutes to put out, Donovan said.
