I was recently reminded of this event from several years ago. We returned from dinner with friends and parked our trusty old Buick, which had well over 100,000 miles on it. Once inside while puttering in the kitchen, I heard an odd sound from outside and looked out to see a quite unwelcome sight. Fortunately the fire department arrived quickly.
|As you can see, the car was close to my husband's truck and our house.
|The house was undamaged. The plastic around the headlights on the truck was a bit melted.
|Although the fire burned through the asphalt driveway and the car was a total loss, we felt fortunate!
