Fire Tears through Semi-Trailer Carrying Over 40 Thousand Pounds Of Chocolate


BAKER
– The scene of a Sunday night semi-trailer fire may have been reminiscent of a chocolate lover’s worst nightmare as it burned through the 42,000-pound chocolate cargo.

At around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday night a semi-truck trailer caught fire on the southbound 1-15 just south of Halloran Springs Road in the City of Baker.

When the San Bernardino County Fire Department Firefighters arrived the semi-tractor and trailer were separated. Around  ⅓ of the trailer was fully involved in flames which spread to a small area of vegetation.

Crews went into attack mode knocking the fire down within around an hour and a half but crews were faced with extensive overhaul.

Fort Irwin Fire Department and CalTrans assisted with the clean up of the burnt trailer and chocolatey mess.  County Fire Public Information Officer Jared Newcomer told a 24/7 Headline News reporter that there were no injuries reported as a result of the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation as of Monday afternoon.
