Many people are hitting the road for their summer vacation because gas prices are low and then are so many great places to explore by car. However, one of the most devastating incidents can happen on a road trip is a car fire.

In addition to the immediate danger, there is also the potential to start a wildfire, which happens too often in our great state of Arizona. With hot summer temperatures and dry brush, car fires happen more easily, and unfortunately are a trigger for brush fires that can quickly get out of hand.

NFPA’s Car Fire Safety tip sheet provides guidance on what to do if the car catches on fire:

Preventing a car fire by knowing the warning signs is key! Also, always travel with extra water in case of an emergency. Safe travels!
