Police SWAT Van catches fire

The Hillsbourgh County (near Tampa FL) SWAT Van, which is like an RV, caught on fire this morning while driven down the road. Two officers were onboard when they smelled smoke. Ammo caught on fire and some exploded. Don't know how to attach a link to pictures but if you google Hillsbourgh SWAT Truck fire you will see some great video and pictures. Glad no one was hurt. Not sure how, or why the fire started. They think it was the generator.

More likely an electrical fire. They more or less "Gut" the RV taking out most of what's in it and replace with things like communication gear, Lots of electrical stuff. Fridge is.. Likely removed. But other posibilities as well. I've seen several engine fires in my years on the road.. Wife even had one but because she was unable to do the absolutely worst thing you can do in the event of an engine fire the damage was under ten dollars.
