Semi Carrying Aerosol Cans Explodes in Fireball
Several fire crews responded after an explosion was reported at a travel stop near Big Cabin, Oklahoma this weekend.
Friday night, a semi pulled into the truck stop because of some brake issues, when the tires suddenly caught fire.
The truck's cargo consisted of 27,000 pounds of women's deodorant, which all went ablaze.
The Big Cabin Fire Chief said the area looked like a warzone. The fire could be seen for miles along I-44.
““When it looks like roman candles going off and you’re walking through everything, it looks like a warzone. Especially at 5 in the morning,” Big Cabin Fire Chief Kevin Oakley said.
Big Cabin Fire called in a specialty clean up crew to deal with the thousands of cans of deoderant scattered across the parking lot.
The repair shop located in the parking lot was also damaged in the fire was expected to reopen this weekend.
No injuries were reported.
