Once the fire is back under control, we'll hear:

It has been reported by sources close to the BFD that one of the cars
was a flatbed carrying a load of backhoes.  This cargo explains the
extensive fiber cuts that happened in the tunnel around the time of
the accident and had previously been blamed on the fire.
