Truck Fire – 10/19/2017

by Jamie Dolan on October 25, 2017

We were camping in Saxton, WI.  I was woken  up by some very loud noises around 3:00a.m. at first I didn’t think much of it, as we were not far from highway 2, which often has trucks, which are a bit loud.  After some additional noises, I decided I better get up and check it out.  I was shocked to see a large fire, just several campsites over.  It was reaching at least 15 feet high.

After taking a second to wake up, I decided we should all get in the car and move farther back and call for help.  We got into the car and move back a good 100 feet.  I called 911, as at this point it wasn’t totally clear if the driver was out of the truck or might be in danger.

Firetrucks started showing up within maybe 20 minutes of when we called and got the fire under control.  The truck ended up being filled with lumber, which appeared to have caught fire to some extent.  They spent the next couple hours off-loading the lumber to another truck, log-by-log and spraying down each log.

The next day, we took a look at the truck as we left, the back end of it was totally destroyed.

Vasco as a young puppy in 2004 sitting in my old Tonka truck. We seem to have lost the old tonka truck, but found a somewhat similar replacement at the thrift store yesterday. On the left is Vasco in the new Tonka age 12.
