2011 Grand Cherokee on fire
 
I was driving down the highway today and saw a 2011 Grand Cherokee that had been on fire. No accident involved. The car was completely untouched. The fire was on the inside and the whole interior was completely burned. I hope there is not some electrical flaw or something with the vehicle!

I hope it's not a problem with the vehicle. Maybe it was arson.

Maybe he was pissed that it did not have Quadra-Lift. :D
In all seriousness I hope that the occupants are okay.

Yea, it was on the side of the highway and I think everyone was ok. The fire was out and saw a couple people standing near it.

Where was this located at? Maybe there will be a news story about it in the next 24-hours or so.

It really could be caused by anything. I once saw an Audi that burnt because some loose change fell into the power outlet in the car and the owner did not know it until it was too late.

Brings back bad memories. I was stopped at a traffic light in my new '95 GC, behind an old clunker. There was lots of smoke between him and me. I cursed under my breath that those old polluting clunkers should be taken off the road. Just then I realized that the smoke was on the inside of my windshield, and not from the outside.:eek: It turned out the daytime running light circuit board under my dash was in the process of being fried, causing all the smoke. Luckily, there was only a lot of heat & smoke and no fire. I got the board replaced and had no other major problems for the life of the GC. :cool:
