    A fire truck heading back from a call dropped into a trench, damaging the truck and causing a headache for the crew.

    Around 11 p.m. Monday on Alvarado Road near College Avenue, the 70,000 lb fire truck fell some two-feet into a ditch after metal plates it was traveling over gave way.

    No one was hurt. It took crews several hours to free the truck.
