A vehicle was destroyed by fire on the corner of Larkey Ln. & Mallard Dr. in Walnut Creek on Tuesday afternoon.

According to witnesses, the driver was warning everybody that there was a full tank of gas, and told everybody to stay away from the newer SUV.

The smoke was blowing into the nearby playground, but no injuries were reported.

Thanks to Dean for the pictures!

Another vehicle fire? This is the third time I read this on Do vehicle fires happen often?

They are using controlled explosions to move. So ya, it happens often. But it shouldn’t be with newer cars. But it does happen. Keep vehicle maintained and fire risk is lower.

The fire hydrants are taking a break and giving way to vehicle fires.
Sorry for the drivers loss, such an inconvenience.

Stats show that people trying to make cheap
repairs on ever more complicated vehical
systems are a big cause of many of these
types of problems

If you live in the State Streets, double check your car doors. Accidentally left my wife’s car unlocked on AZ drive and some scum went through every last inch of it including the rear seat arm rest…but not the trunk cause only the key works these days! Still nothing in there anyway…

So maybe this person had a cheap repair job on their car to cause the car fire?
