(KSL News) HAZMAT, firefighters and other rescuers worked to save a trailer full of ham.
Crews were originally called out on a fuel spill last night at 195 E. Murray-Holladay Road.
When they arrived, they found a semi trailer holding 40,000 pounds of ham, which proved too heavy for the asphalt to support. The trailer began to sink into the ground. Its fuel tank got crushed, causing a small amount of fuel to leak.
Capt. John Golding of the Unified Fire Authority said, "We called in the HAZMAT to check on the fuel spill. It was minor. Everything turned out fine. We saved all the hams."
Rescue teams also helped by shoring up the sinking trailer. It was moved to another location.
