The Car Has Been Parked In A Auxiliary Building With An Apartment For 10 Day, Since May 9th. The People Living In The Apartment Heard A Load Bang Around 3 Am And Open Their Front Door To Seeing A Massive Fire Around The F150. They Tried To Use A Fire Extinguisher To The Fire To No Success. They Woke Myself Up In The Main House On The Property And We Called 911 And Started Spraying The Building With A House, As This Is A Very Dry Area In Southern California. We Open The Front Of The Building Using A Crowbar To See A Very Smoky And Hot Fire Around The F150. We Heard Several More Large Bangs And We Attempted To Put Out The Fire Until The Fire Department Showed Up. After The Fire Was Put Out, It Took About An Hour For The Building To Cool Down. The Entire Building Has Smoke Damage And The F150 Is Completely Burned Out, Especially On The Passenger Side. The Jeep Parked Next To The F150 Front End Melted But Did Not Catch On Fire. It Appears That The Only Item Ever On Fire Was The F150, The Battery Completely Burned Away And Items Next To It Only Suffered Heat And Smoke Damage. I Feel Very Fortunate That This Fire Did Not Kill Anyone Or Burn Down The Entire Neighborhood. Let Me State Again, This Car Was Not Moved For 10 Days. *tr
