Heavy Recovery Team Called in When 18 Wheeler Caught Fire
A heavy recovery team was dispatched to Kingsbury, Texas, after an 18 wheeler caught fire on the highway. The truck was transporting a full load of mozzarella cheese when it had a blowout and suddenly caught on fire. The fire spread quickly and both the tractor and trailer were engulfed in flames. It was a sight that would make any cheese lover weep. The tractor trailer was completely burnt to the ground with melted mozzarella cheese oozing out onto the highway. While it would have been tempting to bring a couple of slices of bread and make a grilled cheese sandwich, the Mission Wrecker team had to stay focused on the job. Before moving the tractor and trailer, the heavy recovery team had a whole lot of cheese to get out of the way. Equipped with a backhoe and a skid steer, the Mission team scraped all of the cheese from what was left of the trailer.They scooped up the melted cheese with the skid steer and deposited it all in a roll off dumpster. To add an extra level of complexity to the recovery, cheese was becoming embedded into the ground as the team went back and forth with the skid steer. It was a cool 41 degree night and the team had to bring in heated power broom sweepers to remelt the cheese and pick it up with absorbent!Something tells us that the heavy recovery team will be staying clear of cheesy food for a while! Great job out there team!
