Salem Firemen were called to a truck fire on Kinney Boulevard and a smoke scare at the adjoining Denny’s Restaurant Wednesday night.
Firemen say the XPO truck driver had already knocked down a fire on the brakes of the vehicle with an extinguisher before the fire department arrived. Water was applied to further cool the brakes.
Meanwhile, firemen believe the smoke scare at Denny’s was the result of fumes from the brake fire getting into the restaurant building.
The fire call came in at 7:37 Wednesday night.
