INDIANAPOLIS - A worker had to be rescued when the hydraulic lift he was using caught on fire.

Lt. Bruce Knott of the Carmel Fire Department said crews were preparing to paint the trim at the new Walgreens store on Rangeline Road when the fire started.

The worker was trapped on the lift until coworkers got a ladder and helped him down.

Knott said there was no word on the cause of the fire but he suspected an "internal malfunction."
