Who knew? Apparently some cheese is flammable:
Some 27 metric tons of flaming brown cheese (brunost), a Norwegian delicacy, blocked off a three-km (1.9 mile) tunnel near the northern coastal town of Narvik when it caught fire last Thursday. The fire was finally put out on Monday.
The hefty fat content — somewhere around 30 percent — is to blame. Kjell Bjoern Vinje, who’s spent fifteen years at the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, reports that this is the first time he can recall a cheese fire on the nation’s roads.
