This Sounds Like An Allstate Commercial

You've seen those Allstate insurance commercials where they show these random accidents, basically plugging themselves as the company that can insure anything, and if it can happen, they can cover it, etc... . When I read this story, I think of those commercials.

In a bizarre series of events, an overheated bearing on a truck ended up burning down a Hazelton home Sunday.

West End Fire District Chief Randy Sutton said a semi truck traveling west on Interstate 84 lost its right front wheel when the bearing failed and it overheated.

The wheel rolled across the frontage road, hit the curb in front of the house, burst through a wall next to the front door and bounced down the stairs before coming to rest in the basement and igniting the fire, Sutton said.
