After a third nor'easter pummeled the East coast last week, one snow plow just couldn't take it anymore. 

The plow caught fire in the Cape Cod town of Orleans, Mass. around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, after the driver saw smoke emanating from the dashboard area, the Boston Globe reported

Orleans Fire Captain Tim Guala said the driver got himself out of the plow fast and no one was hurt, according to the Globe.

But snow plows getting fed up with winter isn't as uncommon as you might think.

“Every so often we see plow trucks catch fire,” he told the Boston Globe. “There were lots of flames and smoke. It was a total loss.”

Despite the loss of the vehicle, firefighters were able to put out the blaze, which happened on Freeman Lane, WHDH News 7 Boston reported.

Massachusetts was hit especially hard by this year's brutal weather — more than 230,000 houses lost power on Tuesday night when the most recent storm hit, and as of Thursday morning, there were still 32,000 homes and businesses without power, according to WBZ News 4 Boston
