Burnt to a crisp '12

Holy $hit!

I was browsing thru a local scrap yard and came across this:

My mouth dropped. Thought I would share this as its interesting to see what could happen to our car in a really bad situation. I wish I knew what ever happened.

Ugh...probably the same fuel line that's been setting all the Escapes ablaze.

It probably got run over due to only having a one cylinder engine.

I know some people like to "smoke out" their headlights, but this is just ridiculous!

Fully charred; minus the front little pieces. Its crazy to see how things just melted inside. Must have been one hell of a bon fire. It is a Quebec car, enough said :)

If you look at the pictures, the car was burned badly all except a corner.
Garage fire is my bet.
No telling if it actually started IN the car, or was external to the car.
It certainly did not start in the engine compartment.
It may have been a general house fire...
If it did start in the car, the front would have been more like the back. Or vise versa.
So my bet is garage or house fire.
