Not much of a chemical fire

The press thinks this is a chemical fire:
"Randal Taylor, 49, of Salt Lake City was asleep in his truck at Flying J Truck Plaza on Jack Tone Road just before 4 a.m. Thursday when a fire broke out inside the vehicle's trailer. The truck was carrying chemicals, including 908 pounds of sodium hydroxide and 612 pounds of an industrial-strength bleach, according to Chief Dennis Bitters of the Ripon Fire Department."
He did a good job, but to point out the very small amounts of chemicals in the truck is ludicrous. He had more fuel in his tank.

I could tell you stories about chemical fires; this story does not even rate.
