On February 12, 2020 at approximately 1527 hours, Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police located a large waste truck engulfed in flames along the side of Route 101 in Candia at the Auburn town line.

Preliminary investigation shows that a 2008 Peterbilt waste truck, being driven by Genesis Aviles (age 29) of Nashua, NH, was traveling westbound along Route 101. The vehicle is suspected to have suffered a mechanical malfunction before beginning to smoke, and ultimately catching fire.

The driver (sole occupant) was able to exit the vehicle prior to sustaining any injuries.

As a result of the events, both westbound lanes of travel were shut-down for approximately forty-five minutes while the fire was extinguished by the Candia Fire Department, and Auburn Fire Department.
