EGYPT MILLS, Mo. (AP) -- No injuries were reported but a fire truck is out of commission after overturning on the way to a southeast Missouri barn fire.

KFVS-TV reports crews were heading to Fox Run Stables in Cape Girardeau County around 12:30 p.m. Friday when the accident occurred.

Dewayne Kirchhoff, chief of the East County Fire Protection District, says roads were dry when the pumper truck rolled over. Kirchhoff says it appears the driver was unable to make a turn onto a county road.

All horses had been led out of the barn before crews arrived to put the fire, which started in a mattress in second-floor living quarters.
