Truck Carrying 6,000 Gallons Of Scotch Catches Fire In New Jersey

A truck carrying more than 6,000 gallons of scotch caught on fire earlier this week when it overturned in New Jersey.

According to, a truck owned by B-Line Trucking in Newark was traveling on King Georges Road through Woodbridge Township when it clipped a telephone pole during a turn.

The truck then crashed into a parked Cadillac and tipped over. No one was in the car at the time of the crash. reports that firefighters were on the scene within minutes and quickly put out the fire. It is unclear if it was the diesel fuel, the scotch, or both that caught fire this morning.

Chief Dan Gregan of the Fords Fire Company said that the fire was put out quickly but did not give any details about the amount of scotch that was lost or what brand it was.

The firefighters responding to the scene couldn’t provide any vital details about the scotch, but they were able to stop the fire before it put any of the homes in the area in danger.

The news is particularly devastating to the New Jersey area as a recent investigation recently found that several restaurants in the area were tricking their customers into purchasing rubbing alcohol instead of scotch.
