Motorists trying to use a road tunnel in Norway's far north have had their way blocked by 27 metric tons of burning goat cheese for nearly a week, the BBC reports. A truck driver abandoned his load of brunost, a highly caramelized brown cheese, after noticing it was on fire. That fire lasted five days and toxic gases have kept the recovery effort at bay; the badly damaged tunnel could take weeks to repair. A Norwegian Public Roads Administration official says he can't remember a similar incident. "I didn't know that brown cheese burns so well," he says.
