A dump truck that caught flames behind the Golden Chain Theatre north of Oakhurst Tuesday morning was quickly responded to by firefighters, who put out the blaze within minutes.

Around 10:45 a.m., firefighters said electrical problems with the truck caused it to spark and catch fire. A full wildland dispatch was called for, but most resources were canceled once engines and crews arrived to snuff out the flames.
