I went by that yesterday going northbound . At about 7am they were still working on it. Traffic backed up about 10 miles. All southbound lanes were completely shutdown . Crazy.
Glad I missed this driver's attempt at fried ice cream.
Looks like overheated brakes. Fire started in the middle of the trailer and worked it way forward. And of course the Reefer fuel tank added to the inferno.
Had that happen to one of our reefers earlier this year. Tire blew and wrapped around the axle. Driver stopped.. after the fire was partially thru the trailer. The insulation is like kindling.
