2000 ford F150 Pickup Was Parked On The Street At My Mother In Law’s House. It Had Been Sitting For About 2 Hours When We Heard The Horn Going Off. We Looked Outside And The Front Of The Truck Was Engulfed In Flames. The Fire Grew So Quickly And Had Burned Out The Whole Cab By The Time The Fire Department Got It Out. It Was A Total Loss, And Has Put Our Family In A Horrible Situation. The Fire Started On The Driver Side Under The Hood. It Looked To Be Above The Wheel And Near The Windshield. While The Fire Was Burning, It Cause The Windshield To Explode, Shooting Glass All Over The Street. The Fire Also Damaged Another Vehicle Parked Nearby. The Truck Is A Charred Skeleton And The Tires Were Even Melted To The Concrete! There Is Absolutely Nothing Left. I Am Grateful We Were Not In The Truck Or Driving Down The Road, But This Is So Upsetting. We Cannot Afford To Buy A New Vehicle, Which Is Why We Were Driving A 13 Year Old Truck To Begin With. We Did Not Have The Money For Another Car Payment. Now -we Are Without A Vehicle. *tr
