Guess you could say today was a bad day...Hey Philip, hope you still got someparts laying around!
Yup I carry a small one. But as it was already burning for a while by the time I was aware so made no attempt to get it out. The interior was already blackened and filled with smoke so there was no way for me to reach it. The smoke and fumes from a burning car interior are VERY toxic and I knew better (from my firefighter training years ago) then to attempt to open the door or get too close.Mike, that sucks big time!!!! Right when nice weather starts to roll around too! By the looks of the damage you need a new hood I guess its a race between you and me to find another hood in Central PA!
Just curious did you ever have a fire extinguisher inside of the car like a small 2.5 or 5 lb extinguisher we have one in our Rally and have not used it yet (knock on wood) but seems like it would help a little bit. I plan on getting a 5lb chrome Halon for my car.
