A truck carrying 40,000 pounds of chocolate catches fire on I-80 in California

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. Interstate 80 near Colfax, Calif., was recently America's sweetest motorway. That's because a truck there carrying 40,000 pounds of chocolate caught fire. Luckily, no injuries were reported, and firefighters were able to put out the fire quickly. The incident did, however, result in a humongous pile of melted chocolate on the road. Now, how sweet would it have been to have a truck hauling marshmallows and graham crackers show up? Missed opportunities. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
