A Lexington firefighter hosed down the engine compartment of a city-owned garbage truck after the engine caught fire on Winchester Road Monday afternoon. The truck's driver was not injured, and the fire did not spread into the trash compartment, which was full of refuse that could have made the fire harder to control, firefighters said.
