Truck hauling pineapples catches fire on I-5
COBURG, Ore. - A trailer full of pineapples caught fire on Interstate 5 northbound early Friday morning.
Firefighters from Coburg and Harrisburg responded and put out the fire, Coburg Fire Chief Chad Minter said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. Minter said the fire appears to have started with the brakes in the trailer. The driver was able to detach the trailer and avoid damage to the truck itself, Minter said.
Whiles crews were still cleaning up after the fire, another crash on I-5 spilled diesel on the road. The hazmat response brought traffic to a crawl for miles.
