Cheese Fire Shuts Down Norwegian Highway Steph Spencer January 23, 2013 Food + Booze, News, Norway 1 Comment © foodiesathome.com An incident in Norway has made all my fondue party escapades, and disastrous flambé experiments seem pale by comparison. A truck containing 27 tons of cheese caught fire, closing a tunnel near the town of Narvik for five days. The cheese — Norwegian brown cheese called brunost, which is a delicacy of that country — turned out to be surprisingly flammable. The fire started on Thursday and was finally extinguished on Monday. Repairs are expected to keep the tunnel closed for another week. Read more about this in the Guardian. One Response Jane January 24, 2013 Thank goodness a bread truck wasn’t caught in it – or a wine truck!!! Mmmmmmm but how sad all that cheese lost. *sigh* Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
