    Yea I had one but not enough time to do anything.

    I lost brakes started smelling burning rubber. By the time I got the truck stopped the cab was full of smoke and within 2 minutes it was fully engulfed.

    New truck rools of the assembly line every 2 minutes. There is only 1 of you. That is what is important.
    But damn what the heck is with all these car and truck fires all of a sudden?

    Maybe brake fluid hit the exhaust or ignition system ?

    I think it had something to do with the brakes but hard to say with what's left of it.
