Some anxious moments on Route 15 in Essex Junction Thursday afternoon.

A resident was working on his truck when it caught fire, threatening a nearby garage.

Firefighters from Essex Junction and Essex Town quickly put out the blaze. They were worried automotive fluids inside the garage could ignite.

"They were working on the vehicle on the fuel system and they went inside, they came outside and it was burning under the hood," said Phil Noyes, the 1st Assist Essex Fire Chief.

The fire caused minor damage to the garage. The truck was totaled.

Fire officials don't know how the truck fire started.
