I saw a Ford Expedition engulfed in flame on the shoulder of Loop 101 in Phoenix, AZ, last year. There was a Highway Patrol car and the former occupants of the vehicle nearby watching it burn. No one appeared to be hurt. I snapped a pic with my cell phone as I drove past.

That's a Toyota 4-Runner. "C" pillar behind rear door has entirely the wrong shape for a Ford. Either way, it must really suck to see your ride home go up in flames. One more reason to be educated and vigilant regarding batteries.
