Cardboard fire
A tractor trailer load of baled cardboard burned Wednesday afternoon in Cocke County but the cause of the fire is undetermined. Trucker Eddie Massingale of Johnson City said he stopped for a break at exit 417 on I-40, and after he got back onto the interstate and had driven some distance eastbound, he saw smoke coming from his load of cardboard. Massingale told Newport Battalion Chief Tim Pack that he pulled off the interstate at the 432 exit and pulled onto the parking lot of Big Stacks Truck Center just before 3 pm. Newport and Cocke County firefighters responded to the scene where they found the estimated 40 bales of cardboard were on fire. Massingale unhooked his tractor, and he was able to move his forklift from the rear of the trailer and use it to unload the bales so they could be extinguished. Battalion Chief Pack said the wooden bed on the trailer sustained some damage from the fire.
