A ruptured fuel line led to a tractor fire Friday in Norfolk.

Personnel with the Norfolk Fire Division were dispatched to the 600 block of East Monroe Avenue just after 5 p.m. to extinguish the fire.

According to a press release from the fire division, first units on the scene found the tractor fully engulfed in flames, and it took about 17 firefighters and four apparatus about an hour to control the flames. They spent another half-hour overhauling the scene and investigating the cause, which was determined to be a ruptured fuel line.

No one was injured during the incident.
