Two Truck Drivers Risked Their Lives For Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies This Morning

From the Morning News’ Scoop Blog:

No injuries were reported, but fans of snack food were in for a scare overnight after an 18-wheeler carrying thousands of Little Debbie snack cakes caught fire on Interstate 35E near the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Two men were driving the truck from Arkansas to San Antonio when the check engine light came on shortly after midnight. The driver pulled over to find the truck’s cab was on fire.

Like a saint among the sugar-deprived, the driver disconnected the trailer, pulled the cab forward down the highway and attempted to extinguish the fire himself, but soon required the help of Dallas Fire-Rescue after the cab was fully engulfed.

Get those men some medals.
