Section of the Great Western Goat-track was only just resurfaced, and a burning truck today destroyed a section of it.

Worse still, my wife had to have a 25 minute detour and was late for work.

Residents of the nearest town to it told me that there was a semi trailer hazmat unit going to it.

Have a look at the video...amazing.

If he was carrying beer, that wouldn't of happened. I've been in a couple of trucks, both D Series Fords, when they got a short under the dash - 24V really lets go then.

Man, intense blaze there!
Hope the driver will be OK...

Our little street had just been fixed up when a house a few down from ours was struck by lightning and caught fire while the owners were away on vacation...luckily, another neighbor walking around the circle spotted it and called 911 right away. The road and shoulder all got torn up pretty badly by the heavy equipment used to battle the blaze and it didn't really get fixed for about 10 years, but you can't really complain too much about damage from the process of saving a house.

Your local gov't built a road which couldn't stand the weight of the fire trucks etc.? I think that is something you can complain about.

Our roads and highways should be built "like the German" roads.
It's always bees said the German roads are deeper, stronger, longer lasting and therefore inarguably better AND CHEAPER.
And, if it ain't the Germans it's some other country....the point is the same.

No, I said the truck burned the road...

Bitumen, 5-600 litres of diesel, and a trailer full of burning cardboard that needed excavators to strip it off the trailer...onto the road to be put out...

I got it...I was speaking to the New Englander who's neighbor's house caught on fire.

I know a pile of burning material will effect things. Possibly a concrete road could withstand it better.

That's why quoting who you are addressing goes a long ways.

The funny thing is that I tend to.

I don't use the "boxed quote" system. I'm the poster who writes, "Mr Soandso said, "blah, blah, blah...". Then I go right to my point or question.

What amuses me are the times when entire posts are boxed (including 20 large photographs) to ask one question.

I enjoyed how well the article was written. Here in the USA, the quality of writing in published journalism has decreased markedly, especially since the advent of the Internet.

Road will just have to be redone.

More importantly nobody killed or seriously injured.

I will see your burned and raise you a crater.

Sept 1970 a tristate truck during teamster strike was shot with centerfire rifle. Truck was filled with explosives. The resulting crater in I44 highway was 50 feet wide, 75 long and 25 feet deep. Windows in Springfield Mo over 12 miles away were broken. I do not know if the driver was ever found, not much left I fear. My cousin lived in republic and lost several windows, some stuff fell in the house and broke, and he found a piece of the truck. Drunks were aiming for the radiator and missed, so they said at their murder trials.
