5 Ways a Car Fire Can Start

Fires in an automobile can be extremely dangerous for the occupants, as they frequently occur in tandem with wrecks or other accidents that may limit the occupants’ mobility or damage the doors of the car, barring escape. All vehicles in the United States are designed with strict safety protocols that seek to minimize the possibility of a dangerous fire, but unusual circumstances can overwhelm even the most effective safety features.

Should you suffer a burn or other injury in a car accident due to the negligence of another party, you are likely entitled to compensation for your resulting medical expenses and other losses. Call the experienced Wisconsin car accident attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874 to schedule an initial consultation to discuss the details of your case.

How Car Fires Start

As with any internal combustion-powered device, cars have a large number of flammable liquids within them that can ignite. Engine fires can sometimes result in dangerous explosions and serious injuries, while even minor fires are extremely dangerous to a victim who is unable to escape. The following are a few of the more common ways that car fires are started:

  • Air bag detonations
  • Engine damage
  • Exhaust malfunctions
  • Leaks in the gas tank or fuel lines
  • Damage to electrical systems

Additionally, car batteries contain flammable gases and caustic acids that may contribute to a fire or explosion.
