CLARION TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – State police in Clarion have released information surrounding a January 16 tractor-trailer fire that killed 10 cows.

Clarion-based State Police say around 2:10 a.m. Paul W. Sturwold, 57, of St. Marys was traveling westbound on I-80 in Clarion Twp. when his 2005 International Harvester Eagle caught on fire.

Sturwold pulled his tractor-trailer off onto the north shoulder.

He was unable to extinguish the fire which intensified causing extensive damage to the tractor and trailer, and resulting in the death of approximately 10 cows which were unable to escape the fire.

Clarion and Corsica Volunteer Fire Departments were able to extinguish the fire.

Sturwold was not injured.

Due to the hazardous conditions caused by both the fire, as well as the weather/road conditions, the roadway was closed and reopened approximately four hours later.

In addition to Clarion and Corsica VFD, Clarion County PennDOT assisted at the scene.

The above report was released to exploreClarion on January 23, 2013.
