Storm-related fire destroys pickup in Sidney

A pickup truck was destroyed tonight by a storm-related fire.

Gusty winds from a storm knocked down a tree limb, which brought down a power line around 7:20 p.m. in back of a home on Forest Street near Linden Avenue.

The Dayton Power & Light wire set the pickup truck on fire, and it appears the flames spread to a basketball hoop and car parked near the truck. No injuries were reported, and the incident was handled by the Sidney Fire Department.
