Gasoline/Diesel tanker truck overturns and burns on Hwy 81 in Belleville, KS. Fire dept. decided it was safest to let it burn out on its own since there was no immediate hazard to people or livestock. No one was injured in the wreck or fire. The road is concrete so it did not burn. However, the heat caused large chunks to come out leaving sizable potholes. Note that the tractor came detached from the trailer and thus did not overturn. Firefighters were speculating if this was a defect in the fifth wheel (the coupler which connects the tractor to the trailer). I don't know the results of the investigation. In any case, the guy's boss is probably very angry.
