FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Thin ice has claimed another vehicle trying to cross a river in interior Alaska.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1vbNfyr) reports a bulldozer trying to cross the Nenana River at the city of Nenana plunged through ice.

The engine and the top of the heavy machine’s fuel tank remained above the water Sunday.

The bulldozer was crossing at a location that’s traditionally used as an ice bridge.

Tom DeRuyter of the state Department of Environmental Conservation says the bulldozer owner has reported no fuel entering the river.

Two vehicles last week broke through thin ice on the Chena River in Fairbanks.
