Vehicle Fires (continued)

If the fire is small, you can use an extinguisher to put it out. Whatever you do, don't spray or pour water on a gasolene, oil or electrical fire. With a large fire , don't attempt to try to put out the fire yourself. The fire may spread to the gas tank and create a large fire ball. Keep far away and call for help.


Car fires are caused by:

  • Fuel Leaks
  • Electrical Shorts
  • Overheated Engines
  • Oil Leaks
  • Intentionally Set

In all vehicle fire situations, think and act quickly. Personal and public safety are the most important considerations. A vehicle can be replaced, but you or someone nearby cannot.
