Default Subaru Caught on Fire!



So sorry for that owner. I wonder what happened?

P.S I'm not the owner of this video

Trying to figure out what happened at 1:17. Looks like the hood itself spontaneously combusted. Never seen a car do that.



Do firemen a favor if you can think of such a thing during such a thing. If your engine bay catches fire, pop the hood for us. You don't have to raise it, just pop it before the fire cuts the release cable.

Based on the smoke coming out of the scoop, I'm going to assume the fuel lines ignited sending flames out the scoop as well. Another thought is to use your on-board fire extinguisher to subdue the flames before it gets out of hand...

People on the original video saying HID caused this. I highly doubt that.
Wouldn't fuses blow?

My favorite is where the guy does exactly that and just starts spraying it at the ground beneath the engine.

If you are dumb enough to try and put out a car on fire by yourself, spray it through the hood scoop and just unload that thing.

Also, lifting the hood of a car on a fire... Brilliant idea.

Because it shows what can happen if you don't fix that oil leak that's leaking down on your heat wrapped headers.

Well, if you're going to speak into the video recorder as commentary for others to listen to, please do so in the Queen's English using proper diction.

It should all buff out..mon.

He didn't suggest the owner open the hood, just pull the release so the properly educated trained and equipped fireman or woman would be able to open it easily when they deemed it appropriate.

You can be sure I'm not reaching my hand under the hood when there's a fire going on.
