Note: Many people notified the Update. Update was there but might not have been. Update thanks everyone who emailed, texted. Update took photos but not as good as Flynn’s.

Post Fourth of July bar-b-que on Washington Blvd at Stanford brought out three fire trucks (one went home) to extinguish a fire in a trash truck in front of the Buna Cafe Tuesday morning.

Traffic was tied up for more than an hour as firemen put out the blaze with foam and water. Eastbound traffic was closed and westbound was one lane. Garbage had to be removed to get to the coals to extinguish the fire. Denise Fast who has her office at the corner said it really smelled.
