Big rig spills Burger King French fries on freeway near Sacramento
A super-sized order of French fries spilled onto Interstate 80 after a big rig caught fire early Tuesday morning in Auburn, north of Sacramento.
The brakes of the big rig carrying a delivery to a Modesto Burger King caught fire near the Applegate Road off-ramp about 1 a.m.
The fire ignited the front end of the trailer, according to Fox 40.
Firefighters were able to put out the fire in 10 minutes, but the trailer was expected to remain on the roadway for several more hours.
Officials used a tractor to remove the fries from the freeway.
