PHUKET: An 18-wheel truck blazed spectacularly north of Phuket today. The driver noted the fire at Kapong in Phang Nga about 11.20am and had little choice. He pulled over and watched the 28 tonnes of bug repellant go up.

Possibly caused by the driver tossing his cigarette butt out the window...which then got sucked back onto the cargo.

Don't want to spend money on safety and better truck driver training (and education on environmental effects), than try a accident like this. This costs that company a lot of money. Insurance will not fork up for the bill if the cargo was not meeting safety standard transport.
