JANESVILLE - A man loses his truck one year after buying it.

The truck was parked in the street at 1327 Gartland Avenue.  The owner says the truck caught fire about 25 minutes after driving it from the Janesville Mall.

The fire started in the engine.  It spread to the front tires.  Firefighters couldn't determine the cause of the fire, but they believe a mechanical problem within the engine compartment is to blame.

The owner says he's had numerous mechanical problems with the vehicle.

No one was hurt.
