A truck carrying 40,000 pounds of potato chips caught fire outside a production site in Florida.

Firefighters were called to a fire at Outlaw Snax in Ocala.

Footage captures the moment firefighters tackled the inferno as colorful bags of crisps float out from behind.

Firefighters used a “deck cannon” – a high-powered jet stream used to extinguish fires with clear line of sight – to extinguish the fire.

There were no casualties as a result of the fire.

The cause has not yet been determined.

This is not the first time that a fire related to chips has been reported.

In November 2021 The Walkers factory in Leicester had to be evacuated after a massive fire broke out inside.

Firefighters were dispatched from across the city to tackle the blaze as the huge facility filled with smoke.

The alarm was raised shortly before 10.45am.

A special unit was sent to cut away parts of the factory’s damaged roof in an attempt to pinpoint the source of the fire.

Rescuers confirmed that there were no casualties.
