Blowout causes truck fire

An 18-wheeler's tire blow-out led to a fire recently on Interstate 20 west of Roscoe. According to emergency and fire authorities, bales of hay caught fire in the back of an 18-wheeler when the truck had a blow-out. The fire got into the middle of the hay bales and many were strewn across the median to ensure that the fire would stop. A truck from Comanche came to haul the hay bales to rest of their way to their destination.
