looking at the pictures, all the trailer tires look fine, also the outside of the trailer does not look bad except where they ripped it open to fight the fire. The burned Bronco has a melted grill, mirror and under body. the front quarters changed color from heat. Are they sure this was a trailer tire fire and not a Bronco fire? the fender flare is even melted but the tire below it did not catch fire?
That trailer wasn't ripped open to fight that fire, it melted open. Those are canvass sides on that trailer. We can't see the driver's side tires.

That front outside tire is flat and off the bead. There is your culprit. I'm just a truck driver, but that day the wind was howling out of the NE at 30-35 gusting to 45. I'd venture a guess he was eastbound and the wind and turbulence from running 70ish MPH, pushed the heat and flames underneath the trailer and out the other side. Just spit balling.

Love's truckstop in Greenville, IL. Tire fire took out a beaut. Damn truck drivers. ?‍♂?

This was NOT caused by the Broncos, for anyone wondering. This was an equipment failure of some kind on the trailer.

I can say with 100% percent certainty, it was either the truck driver running a flat tire too long, or he had a brake hanging up and it caught fire.

Unfortunately the comments are funny but i assure you, over $100,000.00 lost to ford will just add to our cost down the road. This is very sad to see all the way around.
Dammit!! All our builds just went up .53 cents!!!
