No, that truck has a different grill, bumper, and running lights.

Still wondering how you could overload a truck so much the tires would burn off.

The trailer made have contributed to the problem that caused the fire. They added about 1000# tongue weight to the very end of the truck with no weight-distributing hitch. This could have been the extra weight that caused the tires to contact the truck body.

I don't think that the photo in post number 21 is the same truck as the fire photo. The grill and bumper configuration is different.

Or it could have been a broken shackle.

I drove a similar truck with 10,000 lbs of liquid in the back and the tires didn't burn off.

You are correct. I cleaned my glasses. The fire truck has Decals, and a vertical exhaust stack. The fire truck trailer trailer has jalousie windows. Close but no cigar.

Thanks Jim

This is a classic case of tail sag or droop....
