Truck catches fire on interstate
Woodfin – Fire department personnel from the Woodfin Fire Department responded to the report of a tanker trailer on fire on I-26 southbound (east) between exits 23 and 24 on Friday afternoon (June 8). Once firefighters were on the scene they could see the truck was on fire, but the driver had made it out. It was determined the tanker was carrying milk and not any flammable liquids. Mutual aid coming from Weaverville was then cancelled and the fire crew had the blaze under control in a matter of minutes. The Buncombe County Fire Marshal Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
