Hey guys,this isn't a joke. I just want to pass this along because no matter how hard it was for me to believe. it really made me look at the condition I keep my car in.
We had a really crazy heat wave here that ended about a week and a half ago. We got a call to respond to a car that was on fire. After we put it out, the cause team went in to figure out what started it. The fire was traced back to an empty bag of chips (crisps for you English ppl) that was left in the back seat.
How did that cause a fire you ask?
Well. Chips leave lots oils behind in the bag, which can then heat up. In the right conditions, they can become so hot, well.. the rest is up to us to figure out. Just warning to you all. Clean your damn cars!
