    trainloadr - it produced ALOT of smoke and people were probably calling WRAL asking what was on fire, which people do and which I've never understood.

    So how many truck fires does Raleigh have in a year. Could this be a developing news story/ someone burned the truck fleeing a bank robbery or just what. If this is the news of the day, this is indeed great news. No rapes or killings to report (great) - sorry about the truck.

    In the painting, it certainly looks like an American made truck. That could very well be the problem.

    That happened to my sisters truck a few years back. Ended up being an electrical issue and there was later a recall on the part. Her neighbor had the same model truck and it ended up burning down his new house.

    "Scubagirl, you've been watching too many crime dramas. "

    Actually I read stuff like that in the news, and besides many crime dramas base their stories on true events...

    Scubagirl, you've been watching too many crime dramas. I'm sure they just parked the truck in tall, dry weeds, and well.....you know the rest.

    Slow news day.

    i am willing to bet there's more to this than just a truck fire.

    It's a painting. Good call.
