smells smoke, gets back in the car and backs it into the driveway. Comes in
the house, Fred the car is starting to smoke real bad, I jump-up run out to
the drivway, and sure nuff, a big fire under the hood, my outside water is
off for the winter, I open the car door, the hood release will not now
fire is now getting pretty bad, 911, out of the house for everyone, and the
complete under side just melted away, never did any real flaming, just all
electrical. If she had not been so observant, the entire house and
everything in it would be lost, as it is, a Dodge Turbo Shadow, is
All is safe now and no injuries to anyone or anything, but, man what it
could have been inside the garage. No Idea what started it, it was under
hood (engine related). "FT"
Quick thinking woman. Some people would hurry into the garage in such
situations. I heard of an instance where someone's car cought fire so they
quick pulled into a service station. Right up to the pump!
Oops, me brains gone off!
