Good post, Eric. A big CO2 extinguisher or dry chemical extiguisher should always be at hand - the US Navy uses a lot of petroleum products and requires every sailor to understand which type of fire extinguisher to use. Good info and thanks for posting it.

Probably the best burn-out I've ever seen. Ouch.

Don't look like the firefighting team was trained very well. Great burn out!!

NICE! A burnout turns into a burn UP!

Complete incompetence there. Burning oil, fuel and grease let alone the burning rubber. Heat+smoke=FIRE, rubber burns real good and hot. I do not understand why this does not happen more often.

Fact - Which is why we have training all the time. needed some AFFF or at least and ABC extinguisher there. Ill bet one good ABC bottle woulda knocked it out if you could have gotten it where the problem was starting.
