Several tragic images from Bucharest were disseminated in the public space, from Tuesday evening, on November 29. A Coca-Cola truck, the one we are used to seeing in winter commercials, caught fire while driving in a heavily trafficked area of the Capital’s 4th sector. So, a Coca-Cola truck from the winter commercials caught fire on Giurgiului road in Bucharest, at the intersection with Drumul Găzarului.
Shortly after, the firefighters intervened with three special vehicles
According to images shared by passers-by on social networks, the fire broke out violently in the front of the trailer and spread extremely quickly to the tarpaulin. Fortunately, the flames engulfed only the trailer loaded with Coca-Cola, and the driver was able to save himself after he managed to disengage the tractor head.
Later, the firefighters intervened with three special vehicles, an extrication team and a SMURD crew. Unfortunately, by the time the fire department arrived, the Coca-Cola truck was reduced to ashes.
