A truck carrying 40,000 pounds of crisps caught fire outside the Florida manufacturing site.

Firefighters were called to Outlaw Snax in Ocala to put out the fire.

Footage captures the moment firefighters tackled the inferno as the colorful array of snappy bags flooded the back.

The fire brigade used a ‘deck gun’ – a high-capacity jet stream that was used to ‘put down fires with a clear line of sight’ to put out the fire.

No injuries were reported as a result of the fire.

The cause has yet to be determined.

This is not the first time a fire has been linked to crisps.

In November 2021, the Walker’s factory in Leicester had to be evacuated because a large fire broke out.

Firefighters were dispatched from across the city to put out the fire, as the enormous facility was filled with smoke.

The alarm was sounded shortly before 10.45 in the morning.

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

Rescuers confirmed there were no casualties.
