Wow what a shame! Don't you think that the FD or the wrecking crew would have cut all power to the bus?? But what do I know.....

Scary. I wonder what started the fire? That is my biggest fear with these machines.

I believe that's a different fire. In the article it talks of the boat being engulfed and the fire being on the freeway. Also if there was a brake fire wouldn't one of the tires be charred? One of the YouTube comments was "The other day you showed an RV and boat that were burnt up more than this, was that a different one?"

Default Don't tow boats thru Indio

That's crazy! Plaza Towing is based out of Indio, CA. For Indio to have 2 RV fires with boats in tow within a week......... Kinda scary.


Is there any sense that the Bird fire originated near the rear stack?

Agreed, as I become acquainted with all the systems of my coach, my hope is that the PM's will keep the risk down.
