The driver, of Swiss origins, cut the cheese trailer loose and ran

I'll bet that smelled both repulsive and mouth watering at the same time.

Then nothing of value was lost.  Whew.

Well, Kraft singles can be good from time to time, if I'm feeling nostalgic.

Back in the 90's, there was a refrigerated warehouse fire that stored meat and cheese.
The resultant mess was taken to the local landfill which was right next to our RC flying field.
The fire was in the winter.

That summer, the smell was strong, but not bad. Disagreeable, maybe, is the best way I can describe it.

too bad about the truck...but that Krap ain't real ™ cheese.


The semi had 20,000 pounds of Kraft and Velveeta cheese inside. It brought out a lot of people who couldn't believe what was burning.

"It's a very difficult fire once the cheese gets going," said Assistant Chief Kurt. "We also had a diesel...the combination of cheese and diesel fuel made for a pretty hot fire."

The semi and the cheese are both total losses.

Just a couple months ago, a truck dumped thousands of pounds of skittles on the highway there. The skittles didn't pass QC so they were being sent to feed the cows that made the milk that makes the cheese. I bet that won't make the NK propaganda films

Probably because it implies the Assistant Chief has an unusual amount of experience dealing with cheese fires.
