Sad but yum.
If the thought of wasting food makes you cringe, you may want to look away. 76,000 pounds of beef ribs headed to Los Angeles went up in flames Saturday when the truck containing them caught fire.
And according to firefighters at the scene, it smelled “wonderful.”
The truck had been headed from Flagstaff, Ariz., to Wilmington. The fire started on the 40 Freeway in San Bernardino County after one of the back wheels of the trailer caught fire, reported the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. The freeway had to be shut down for two hours.
The fire had a “wonderful BBQ beef rib odor to it,” read a report.
