This story is from Waynesville Daily Guide:
The truck drivers had stopped in Rolla to get fuel, got back on the interstate, and managed to drive only about 10 minutes down the road before they noticed smoke and fire. They called 911 at 4:17 p.m., and were able to unload one of the cars from the truck before the fire got too hot to risk removing more vehicles.
The first firefighters on the scene were from Doolittle and knew they’d need help.
“The first arriving unit saw the cab and two of the cars were on fire with heavy fire conditions; immediately they asked for mutual aid from other departments.
Rolla firefighters sent a 75-foot aerial ladder truck to apply foam to the truck.
The good news is nobody was hurt and the ambulance that responded went home empty.
