Cheese-tastrophe of 2017

April 19, 2017

Tuesday afternoon, a semi truck containing 20,000 pounds of Kraft and Velveeta cheese caught fire.

When the driver realized his brake lines were on fire, he pulled over to disconnect the trailer from cab, ensuring that no one except the cheese was harmed.

"It's a very difficult fire once the cheese gets going," said Assistant Chief Kurt. "We also had a diesel...the combination of cheese and diesel fuel made for a pretty hot fire."
