Officials with the Town of Andes Highway Department are looking for another snowplow after one of theirs burned up on February 2.

“We could use help,” said Deputy Highway Superintendent Brad Darling. “We’re looking for a good, used four-by-four. We need to get the word out.”

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the image of the scorched 1991 Autocar snowplow is worth plenty. Dan Melvin, 37, a town highway department employee and heavy equipment operator reported that he was plowing on Wolf Hollow Road in Andes, when he heard a bang and jumped out of the cab just before it burst into flames. Fortunately, he was not hurt, but he told his bosses that he had to walk a mile before he could find a phone in order to notify them of what occurred.
