Jasper County Truck Fire

We cover the news, but aren't usually part of the story. Last night, video journalist David Rousseau and satellite truck operator Greg Mascunana spotted a truck on Interstate 95 in Jasper County spewing smoke, then fire.

The driver pulled over and our crew stopped to help. Rousseau grabbing a fire extinguisher while Mascunana called for help. They put the fire out. But then the driver tried to start the truck again, and started the fire again. Rousseau emptied the extinguisher and waited for the fire department. Fortunately, no one hurt in the incident.
