October 14, 2019

New video of the smoldering garbage truck that authorities believe sparked last week's deadly California fire has emerged, and it was filmed by an 8-year-old boy. Shawn Melvin told Inside Edition he was driving with his son when he saw the garbage truck with the burning trash, known in the carting business as a "hot load." "There was actually flames coming up where the trash goes down," Melvin said. "I honest to God didn't think it was going to go as far as it did."
