10 TONS of packaged cheese went up in smoke after the brakes on the semi truck carrying it caught on fire. Fortunately the driver made it out alright but the cheese did not.

"This really breaks my heart to see the cheese all melted up," said witness Jim Wendt.

Unfortunately none of the cheese could be salvaged and clean up crews hauled it all away. Check out the huge mess below.
