Comfort VFD kills fire moving towards broken down truck on I-10


The intense moments of summer heat on I-10 were heating up as a blaze, believed to be caused by sparks from a truck, who had just lost a wheel, were moving toward the truck.

Karen Rockoff stopped to assist the truck that was stuck in the median, and posted this in the Kerrville Breaking News Facebook group.


The fire was inching closer to the broken down truck.

That’s when Comfort VFD arrived on the scene and went to work against the blaze, getting it under control and eventually put out altogether.

The incident occurred just after noon at MM 518 on I-10 Eastbound.

This drone video, shot from the KBN Quadcopter shows the overall damage from the fire.
