    My buddy called me and said that they had a forest fire by his house. We picked up my Sport Trac so we can start moving trash and the forestry took a bulldozer and bulldozed all behind his house so I got to take some photos with my phone. I parked my Sport Trac and we went inside for dinner and when I was leaving the tree by my truck was on fire! we ran to grab the hose and when we turned around the truck was engulfed in flames. The fire department was arounded the block so they got there very quickly and to top everything off I broke a mud flap on my tacoma. The video is me pulling it because it still has a full tank of gas and another tree by the bed was starting to burn.

    Damn dude that sucks about your sport trac.

    Yea both are mine. The Sport Trac is my "work/play" truck. It was really good for pulling my boat with the short wheel base. The Tacoma is also a play truck but I'm trying to keep her nice till she is paid off.

    Sorry to hear. Any Idea on how it happened. Looks like it started in the inside. Maybe some embers go on the carpet of seat?
