76K Pounds of Ribs Burn in California Highway Truck Fire

Wednesday, February 5, 2014, LUDLOW, CALIFORNIA


A Southern California freeway smelled like a cookout when a big rig carrying 76,000 lbs. of beef ribs caught fire. The San Bernardino Sun reports the rear wheels of the truck ignited Saturday night on Interstate 40 in Ludlow.

San Bernardino County Fire spokesman Al Franco says that by the time firefighters arrived, the truck was unhooked from the trailer, which became engulfed in flames.

He says the fire emanated "a wonderful BBQ beef rib odor."

It also shut down traffic for about two hours.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
