NEWS: 76,000 lbs of ribs burn in So Cal truck fire

On the negative side, it took 6500 gallons of water to snuff the fully-engulfed truck.

But on the brighter side, onlookers said the area had a "wonderful, BBQ aroma".

This news story reminded me of the one about the 18-wheeler that crashed. It was full of bananas and the skid-marks went on for miles...
