Re: [DML] Nice day for a car fire?

I was thinking that perhaps something electrical got caught up in the
liquid and jumped to ground somewhere around something flammable.
You're right -- water and antifreeze aren't flammable. I won't know
what caused the fire, anyway -- all I can do is repair the damage, or
(more likely) have someone else do it since I am out of town and don't
have any tools!

Fuel leak? I doubt it. The fuel line to the carburetor runs to the
front of the unit. The fire was *behind* the carburetor: the
distributor cap took the brunt of the damage -- melted away until the
rotor was plainly visible. But I could be wrong!

I'll post some pictures to DMCTalk so that folks can see what
happened, but the pictures were taken right after the incident, so
everything's covered in white fire extinguisher gunk.
