    I am thinking it probably was not very intelligent to have an outboard engine laying on its side, that is great way to go if you want fuel leaking out of it, just Sayin!

      Agree. Especially with gas in engine which probley wasn’t secure and was moving around on the metal which sparked.
      Hope everyone in truck are ok

        how did you know there was fuel in it? could have been brand new… just saying

  2. Hummmmm wtf says:

    What!!!! Here I am thinking only buses catch on fire

  3. No matter what the cost, thankfully there was no lost of life and we do not have another family grieving. The vehicle and all of it’s contents are replaceable, but you can not replace a life.

    Well now, that one is different. It will be interesting to hear what started that one.

    Engine laying on its side, fuel leaked out into the flat bed then trickles onto a hot exhaust, bingo combustion. Glad no one was hurt.

      And to think Joe lacks enough intelligence to figure that out? I always say, ” you can’t fix stupid!”
