MOORHEAD - A driver was uninjured when his van caught fire on Thursday, July 21, at the intersection of Highway 75 and 140th Avenue North north of Moorhead.

Moorhead police and fire department personnel responded just before 11 a.m. to a report of a van on fire.

The van's owner, William Beckman, wasn't hurt.

"I was driving and a guy pulled up next to me and said, 'You got flames,' while pointing down," Beckman said.

Beckman said the exhaust was leaking and must have been sparked.
