LAWTON, Okla._A man's pickup was destroyed Wednesday evening after the engine caught fire, but his trailer and cow were saved.

The driver pulled over after smelling smoke while traveling on Highway 7, just east of Southwest 120th Street. A nearby farmer rushed over with a fire extinguisher, but the hood slammed shut while fighting the fire. That's when the men decided to unhitch the trailer and push the burning truck forward, away from the trailer.

The grass near the truck caught fire minutes later, but was quickly contained thanks to the quick response from Cox’s Store firefighters. The truck was a total loss, but no one was injured.
