Car Fire
Flower House Loop Road

It appeared the owner of the vehicle had been working on the engine.  Overheard that the owner had fuel pump malfunction and fuel was pumped onto the engine causing the fire.  The vehicle was close to a mobile home but appears to have been moved a short distance before fire became intense.
