RENSSELAER, Ind. (AP) — A load of frozen bagels ended up toasted and strewn along a northwestern Indiana highway after a semi-trailer's rear axle caught fire.

State police say an off-duty trooper noticed smoke pouring from the rear of a box trailer being hauled Sunday evening by a semi along northbound Interstate 65.

The southbound trooper turned around, but by the time he stopped the truck south of I-65's Rensselaer exit, its trailer's brakes were burning as the flames spread into its 38,000-pound load of frozen bagels.
