BRIGANTINE — A hoverboard caused a fire in an Atlantic County Utilities Authority collection truck Tuesday, the ACUA said.

While completing their route, two employees smelled smoke and pulled the truck over. The Brigantine Fire Department put out the fire.

After sorting through the trash, a hoverboard was determined to be the cause.

The ACUA reminds residents to not throw out electronics. Contact local recyclers for their disposal.
