Norway goat cheese fire closes tunnel

A road tunnel in Norway has been closed - 
by a lorry-load of burning cheese.About 27
 tonnes of caramelised brown goat cheese - a delicacy
 known as Brunost - caught light as it was being driven
 through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord, northern Norway,
 last week.
The fire raged for five days and smouldering toxic gases 
were slowing the recovery operation, officials said.
