FORT DODGE, Iowa – An SUV belonging to the Fort Dodge Police Department was destroyed by flame Monday night following a chase.

The chase began around 7:00 p.m. at Walmart when a Webster County sheriff’s deputy started a pursuit of a stolen vehicle.

The chase ended in a field on the east side of Fort Dodge after the suspect crashed into a nearby ravine. The suspect, 32-year-old Bradley Baumann of Fort Dodge, fled on foot but was later taken into custody.

A Fort Dodge police cruiser, for an unknown reason, caught fire while in the corn field and was destroyed. Police provided Channel 13 with a photo of the burned out SUV.

Officials say no one was injured.
