What make and model? People need to know so that they don’t make the same mistake.

Inquiring minds want to know…was it an electric vehicle? :)

Probably not since it seemed they got it out quickly.

Does not appear to be. If it was they could spray water on it all night and it would not go out. They have special blankets now that smother EV’s on fire. If you blow the photo up you can see it’s a Mercedes Benz and gasoline-powered more than likely. You can see a bit of the silver star just right of the firemen’s arm.

Mercedes Benz has a track record of poor reliability. I remember the driver and passenger in a Mercedes Benz being stranded out in a remote area on the dark night being surrounded by coyotes.
