Blaze damages fire station in Bellevue

No injuries have been reported from a fire that forced an Iowa firefighter to drive a firetruck out of a station so he could turn around and fight a fire inside the station.

The fire erupted Thursday morning at the station in Bellevue, a city of about 2,200 people that sits along the Mississippi River.  Fire crews from three other departments were called in to help with the flames, which damaged two fire engines and a rescue boat.

Jackson County Sheriff's Deputy Steve Schroeder says that he saw the firefighter stick his head out of the firetruck as he drove it out of the station.

The state fire marshal says the cause of the fire, which started near a trash container, has been listed as undetermined.
