A van with a defective engine caught fire on Bangkok’s Kanchanapisek Road on Friday (September 18) as it was being driven to a garage for repairs.

 

Police arrived to find the Toyota Commuter van in flames in front of an Esso petrol station and managed to put out the fire in 10 minutes.

 

Nongyao Sitthiyot, 55, told police that she was heading from Nonthaburi’s Bang Yai district to a garage in Bangkok’s Bang Khae district. She said as soon as she saw signs of the vehicle’s engine having problems, she parked to ask people for help.

 

However, the van burst into flames before anything could be done.

That is some fire.

Is is a Tesla? They seem to burst into flames in America and immolate their drivers?

 

Seriously, though it would ruin your whole day having this sort of thing happen

I see this often on TVF. Someone who's probably never put out a fire in their life criticizing others for the time they take to do so.

No criticism Moonlover.

 

It just looks a big fire. Maybe carrying something that burns fiercely.

Sorry, I misunderstood you.

 

As with most military personnel, I underwent fire fighting drills and I do recall being taught to be very cautious when tackling vehicle fires. They can be quite dangerous.

 

I reckon they did pretty well to get that one out in just 10 minutes.

Sometimes these thing do happen, something breaks, fuel leak and that's your lot.

No warning, it happened to me once a long time ago.

LPG!

These are usually diesel engines, the conversions I've seen have been to petrol engines. Although I suppose it's possible. 

 

I'd go with some hot exhaust part igniting something.
