Emergency crews respond to a tractor fire today at the Charlottesville Albemarle Airport (CHO).
An older tractor, built around 1986, caught fire. Fortunately it wasn't on the taxi-way or runway.
Airport officials say it’s hard to determine what caused the fire, but all signs point to an electrical wire short.
Station 9 responded and put out the fire in a short amount of time.
Everything is secure at the airport.
