Posted:

MARNE (KWWL) -- Two truckers escaped a fire that destroyed a semi-trailer and its cargo of wine near Marne in western Iowa.  Cass Co. deputies say the men were sleeping in the cab of the truck around 3:30 a.m. Sunday when they were alerted to flames from the refrigeration unit atop the trailer. They had parked the rig on the eastbound Marne on-ramp to Interstate 80.  The men tried unsuccessfully to separate the tractor and trailer.
