‘Skunky’ Fire: Semi Full of Heineken Goes Up in Flames on I-70
A shipment of Heineken beer bottles was on its way from Nebraska for consumption in the Denver area when the driver was alerted his back end was on fire.
According to the Denver Post, on early Thursday morning (February 6, 2020) a 48-foot semi-trailer caught while westbound on I-70 outside of Strasburg which out on the eastern plains.
As soon as the driver pulled off to the side of the road, the whole trailer burst into flames. The driver wasn't injured, but thousands of bottles of Heineken were destroyed in the blaze.
Known for being a 'skunky' beer, Heineken is currently running ads with Daniel Craig promoting the new Bond film, 'No Time to Die.'
Apparently, this was these bottles' day to die.
