We come across a lot of interesting posts on our forums. Most of them are filled with tales of modifications, dyno numbers and track times. It’s usually a place for celebrating the hard work put into project vehicles. However, sometimes things don’t go as planned and people want to share their struggles too. Such is the case with a friend of Alex Dial, who posted a photo of his new truck that burned to the ground shortly after he purchased it.

After just a few minutes there was little left of this new F-150. “And, yeah, it could have been a lot worse,” Alex said of his truck fire. “If I wasn't a car guy I could have ignored the smell then I'd be hurting.

“Yes it was a new 2016 F-150 had 20 miles on it when I bought it. Not really sure what caused the fire I just know I was on the way to work when I smelled something burning,” Alex explained. “So I pulled over popped the hood and the fuse box was on fire. As soon as I seen the flames I backed off to a safe distance and called 911.”
