Snow removal equipment catches fire at Pittsburgh International Airport

So today a piece of snow removal equipment caught fire near gate A22 at Pittsburgh international. There are reports of a possible explosion, but no injuries are reported. The FD was able to extinguis it quickly. (theyre pretty awsome, I’ve met some of them) pretty interesting. I’ve never seen a report of somthing like this. It is unclear exactly what equipment ut was, or any long term affects…

Well I mean I’m just wondering what kind of equipment it is, because some things they probably have a fleet of, and one is still a big deal, but workable, but some things they only have one or two of if it’s more specialized, so i’d assume that would have a greater impact…
