Hi, can anyone help with the experience or idea of how is this possible?
The car was not driven for a month and it suddenly caught fire under the front hood. The car was left in workshop parking area for painting jobs. According to the photos and judging, the place of origin of the fire is under the coolant fluid tank or close there?
Anyone have an idea that could cause burning in or near this place?

Likely arson. diesel is very difficult to ignite without being compressed. And with engine off there is no spray of fuel. Looks like a petrol fire.
