The Barnes County Sheriff’s Department, Valley City Fire Department and the North Dakota Highway Patrol responded to a truck fire that contained hazardous, radioactive material Monday at about 3 p.m. on exit 298 on Interstate 94.
Barnes County Sheriff’s Deputy Don Fiebiger, who was at the scene, said flames were coming out of the brakes, which had overheated, and the truck driver had put the fire out himself. The fire department responded just to cool off the brake drums.
The truck was containing two containers of uranium. The shipping company was RSD Logistics. There were no injuries or significant damage to the truck.
