CLEVELAND (AP) -- A Cleveland fire truck was stuck in a city street for three hours after the pavement partially collapsed.

The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/1luB4NA) newspaper says the truck's crew was giving out smoke alarms Saturday when the truck hit a hole in the street, and the pavement partially collapsed.

A tow truck finally helped free the fire truck after about three hours.

A fire department spokesman says the truck's crew left in a backup truck while crews worker to free the other one.
