Fire Wipes Out Tractor-Trailer, Cargo Of Cheese

 Thursday, April 20, 2017


A truck filled with cheese caught fire in West Allis Tuesday. Nobody was hurt, but 20,000 pounds of cheese is gone.
According to the fire department, the truck driver was on the highway when he realized his brakes were on fire. He pulled off at an Office Max, and tried to put the fire out himself. When that didn’t work, he disconnected his cab and fire crews had to do it. Cheese burns at a high temperature, so when firefighters responded, they had to use foam to fight the fire. The semi had 20,000 pounds of Kraft and Velveeta cheese inside.
