[QUOTE=h2ohangtime;1692178] How can someone NOT know their car is on fire or at least over heating when they park it? Craziness...[/QUOTE
you just answered your own question because you dont even know. engine temperature, in and of itself, is not a cause of external combustion. so, if it wasnt heat, it was was electrical. IF that is the case, then by your logic, every homeowner that comes home to a house in ashes that is the result of an electrical fire should have seen it coming. have some compassion...even you admitted the owner was on the lake...if they werent running the vehicle, how could their lack of attention allow it to create more heat in their absence?
