QUINCY (WGEM) - A truck caught fire and exploded Wednesday in the Culver’s parking lot, closing part of Broadway.

The Quincy Fire Department responded to the scene, and firefighters requested additional crews to respond. The vehicle, a County Market refrigeration and maintenance vehicle, then exploded, sending debris across Broadway, damaging several vehicles. No injuries were reported.

“We’re fortunate the way he was parked and the way the explosion happened that it didn’t cause any other issues with vehicles next to him,” QFD Deputy Chief Steve Salrin said. “It looked like he was parked here by himself at least when I rolled up.”

Eastbound Broadway between 24th and 25th streets was closed for more than an hour as firefighters continued to work at the scene.

The fire is still under investigation.
