Truck fire on Interstate 88, 2-26-18

This from Dave Weaver,

2/26/18 MAPLE PARK – Kaneville FPD (DeKalb FD’s district) Garbage-Hauling Semi Fire WB I-88 MM 100.25 (near Keslinger Rd.) – Video by Dave Weaver


Excerpts from the

Illinois State Police and firefighters from DeKalb and Big Rock responded about 9:30 a.m. to westbound I-88 near Maple Park for a truck fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters wet the flaming trash, which was contained to the back of the truck, on the side of the interstate until there was little risk that the fire would flare up again, DeKalb Deputy Fire Chief Jeff McMaster said.

The driver, who was not injured in the incident, then drove the truck to the DeKalb County landfill, 18370 Somonauk Road, Cortland, after authorities determined it was safe to drive. The truck was already close to its destination. Only one lane was shut down, while firefighters worked to extinguish the flames.

Firefighters from the Cortland Fire Department completely extinguished the garbage after it was unloaded in a secure area.
