Load of frozen bagels scorched when semi’s axle catches fire

This Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019 photo provided by the Indiana State Police shows a load of frozen bagels that ended up toasted and strewn along a northwestern Indiana highway after a semi-trailer's rear axle caught fire near Rensselaer, Ind. State police say an off-duty trooper noticed smoke pouring from the rear of a box trailer being hauled Sunday along northbound Interstate 65. The southbound trooper turned around, but by the time he stopped the truck south of I-65's Rensselaer exit, its trailer's brakes were burning as the flames spread into its 38,000-pound load of frozen bagels.
