LONDON -- Someone will be getting a grilling about this. British fire crews say a truck carrying a cargo of cheese has burst into flames on an English road.

The truck loaded with 24 tons of cheese caught fire on a rural road in Somerset, southwest England.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue service said Thursday that fire spread rapidly through the truck and set its consignment of cheese alight.

The fire department believe that the blaze was caused by a fault with the vehicle.

Before it suffered the fire – and cheesy meltdown – the driver had been headed for a mechanic to have a problem fixed.

No one was reported hurt in the incident.
