Fireman injured by burning tire

April 6, 2007

Albany --  An Albany firefighter suffered minor injuries Thursday night when a burning tractor trailer tire blew up.

About 9:30 firefighters were called to a Cordele Road truck stop, where the brakes locked up on a tractor trailer, setting its tires on fire. 

One of the tires exploded, knocking ten year veteran firefighter Jared Warren to the ground, and hitting him in the neck with pieces of rubber.

Warren was taken to the hospital for treatment, with reportedly minor neck lacerations.
