Sink Hole Nearly Swallows Fire Truck

Power turned off in Jersey City Sunday

A fire truck got stuck in a sink hole in Jersey City.

The truck was responding to a report of a water leak at a house on Linden Avenue Sunday.

When firefighters got out and walked up to the house, they heard a loud noise, and saw the truck starting to slide inside the sink hole.

Power crews had to turn off electricity to about 50 homes so a crane could remover the truck.

It's not clear what caused the street to open up.
