Truckload of burning cheese closes tunnel for five days1/23/2013
What burns for five days and smells delicious? Why, Norwegian brown cheese, of course. A two-mile-long tunnel near the Norwegian town of Narvik was closed for five days after a truck containing 27 metric tons of brunost, a brown cheese that is a delicacy in Norway, caught fire last Thursday and was finally put out on Monday. The "high concentration of fat and sugar is almost like petrol if it gets hot enough," a policeman said of the burning cheese, which has a 30 percent fat content and tastes like caramel (yum). An official for the country's public roads said it was the first time in his career that he'd seen cheese catch fire in a road. You don't say! [Source]
