  1. Would leaving it running make it go on fire?

  2. @12.04pm: No, but I suspect that the car was probably over-worked and under-serviced given its use as a delivery vehicle.

  3. no,

  4. a bad wire , or may be it was the air bag.

  5. The delivery guy was keeping food warm by leaving it under the car’s hood. A burrito explosion is what caused the fire.

  6. Yes, the Mexican Methane combination can be lethal….
