Town of Culpeper – Discarded fireworks that combusted are to blame for a trash truck fire that was put out with a fire extinguisher. A Culpeper, Vir. neighbor was walking his dog, Spanky, when he noticed white smoke pouring out of the trash truck. He grabbed a spare fire extinguisher and ran it over to the trash truck driver whose own extinguisher was nearly depleted. Officials reminded the public to not put combustible material in the trash.
