Tanker carrying ethanol catches fire

A semi-truck tanker carrying ethanol caught fire on 19 January.

Surrounding roads had to be closed in both directions while firefighters put out the flames. It remained closed following the incident as a safety precaution while the tank cooled.

The trailer's brakes caught fire and ignited the trailer's passenger side tires, where the fire was contained.

There was no structural integrity lost in the tank; none of the tank's contents escaped.
