"I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman.  The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling.  Our proudest moment is to save lives."

- Chief Edward F Croker

No Injuries were reported and the load that the semi was hauling was not damaged and was transported to its destination via another truck.
