Cavaliers Cook Truck Fire Update

| |

Early Wednesday morning, while the corps was en route from Bellbrook, OH to Dillsburg, PA, smoke was discovered coming from the cook truck while at a rest stop. Drivers Collis Wagner, Lorene Hines and Don McWhorter jumped into action when they discovered a major blaze in the interior of the cook vehicle. Collis was able to extinguish the flames and the following inspection showed the interior was burned, melted and rendered unusable for the remainder of the summer.

After waiting for the truck to cool and ensuring that the fire was completely out, we were able to continue to our housing in Dillsburg. Upon arriving at Northern High School former marching member Jeremy Leidhecker, Director of Bands, along with school officials allowed us access to the school’s kitchen and cafeteria. Their generous support allowed us to salvage many of our frozen, refrigerated and other perishable foods.
