UPDATE: A semi-truck fire destroys stock of Beef

LAKESIDE, CA – A fire started on a semi-truck on the I-8 Monday and the contents were a complete loss, reports NBC 7 San Diego.

This is an update from a previous article written. When the fire department received word of the fire, they were unable to tell what caused the fire.
