    This happened about 2yrs ago in PA, I think, and they said it was the Vmonics that caused the fire.

    Almost an entire fleet of city buses were destroyed recently near here. A parked regeneration was in progress on the one that started the fire. The bus manufacturer replaced the fleet because of similar problems on that model in the past. A modification is in progress for the problem models.

    It happened in AL, too- they sent out a memo saying it was something electrical.

    How fast it spreads is not the same as how it starts- there's a lot of flammable stuff in those trucks. Just look at how much is left.
