    I got it all on video. The truck driver was un Harmed. The fire started in the engine compartment from what I could see. Happend right across the street from our office.

    Again no Bash A Trucker comments, must be either because a car wasn’t involved or because this truck was hauling Gasoline and not freight, and the Bash A Truckers need gas to drive the wrong way on 81.
