Jeep Fire On Faithful Steward
Around 12:47 this afternoon a jeep caught on fire on the beach near Faithful Steward Crossing in Delaware Seashore State Park. Smoke could bee seen a mile down the beach. It could easily be seen on the Deldot Traffic cams.
The fire was out by 1:30 with Rehoboth Beach fire crews still checking for secondary spark ups and clearing the area. No injuries were reported and all are fine, as far as we know.
The cause of the fire is unknown right now, but I’ll go out on a limb and say they didn’t air down. This is usually the cause of 99% of all vehicle fires on any drive on beach. There was recently an explorer that caught fire on Corolla beach down south. Transmissions when over worked form not airing down will heat up. The fluid boils over and usually sprays out of the dipstick area, then flashes into fire when it contacts the engine. This is a good example of why EVERY vehicle needs to air down.
