On Saturday night, a truck that was carrying 76,000 pounds of beef ribs erupted in flames along Interstate 40 in Ludlow, California.
The fire started in the truck’s rear wheels. According to Al Franco, spokesman for the San Bernadino Sun, the entire trailer was burning by the time firefighters arrived on the scene. By this point, the truck was no longer hooked up to the trailer.
Passersby were welcomed with the distinctive aroma of beef ribs as they sat stuck in traffic for about two hours. There were no injuries, but the cause of the fire is still unknown.
Local rib restaurants may have had an influx of customers after the incident, though.
