Firefighters save 90 kg of sausages from the "best-smelling fire" they've witnessed in a long time

NEW CASTLE (Pennsylvania) - Firefighters in Pennsylvania have managed to save 90 kg of Polish sausage from what they're calling the best-smelling fire they've doused in years. The New Castle News reports that firefighters responded about 11.30 am Monday when a 6-by-6-metre smokehouse caught fire in the yard of Cash Koszela. He's a retired meat cutter who's been smoking his own sausage for about 30 years. Firefighters say some grease caught fire when the smokehouse got too hot - about 300 degrees. Koszela says it will cost about US$3,000 (S$3,800) to replace the smokehouse. It's actually a tin-lined walk-in cooler fed by smoke piped in from a fire pit. Assistant Fire Chief David Joseph says, "This is definitely the best-smelling fire we've seen in a long time." AP
