02/09/12 108 W, 1 I - + 5 - 4 Tanker Fire in South Carolina

Here's your Thursday hot shot, from a tanker fire Tuesday in Honea Path, SC. The fierce-looking fire was extinguished in about 15 minutes. The vehicle left the road, overturned, and its contents were ignited by a felled power line. Looks like seven fire departments were on scene, along with a haz-mat team from the county, Anderson County. The county also has a flat-bed truck equipped with equipment for spraying non-alcohol alcoholic [ talk about responder safety!] foam, which helped quickly extinguish the blaze. Richard Kelly took the picture, shown in this Independent Mail story. Also see this Firegeezer posting.
