6.0 catches fire

Has anyone had a 6.0 catch fire? my 06 f250 did about two weeks ago. had just got it sold had 2000 dollars in my hand waiting on the bank to open monday to get the rest we decided to drive it one more time. then was going down the road and started smelling diesel real bad pulled over and noticed smoke from under the hood. raised the hood and was met by flames. has anyone had anything similar happen? the last time any work was done was when we put studs and new headgaskets. it probably could've been saved if the fire dept would've got there in a reasonable amount of time. the station they came from was 2.3 miles from where i was and it took them over 45 min to get there. and to top it all off i had a box of shells inside the cab going off.

Who did the work? Unless it was bone stock never touched under hood, I suspect someone didn't reconnect something well or maybe not use new orings.

me and a friend did the work. used all new gaskets and seals on everything. every part was back to factory torque specs. that was the only engine work done. and that was last christmas. i've put about 40,000 miles since it was done. i'm clueless.

they had better. i've been talking to them trying to get every thing straight. you wouldn't believe all the info they wanted. i had to get them my credit score, payment history on the truck for 1 year, fire report, police report, 911 records, cell phone records, maintinence records, cause and origin report, records of any work done, plus they had to call 2 of my friends who were with me, the person who picked us up and the person who's house we were going to. there acting like i've commited murder. the adjuster says its just "standard procedure" though but most insurance companies will bend over backwards to try to get out of paying for something.

Sorry to hear that, some bad luck. A shame to see such a nice truck gone, but at least you got out and everyone is alright. Hope insurance works with you and doesn't play their dang games with you.

thats what there doing been arguing with them for 9 days got told yesterday they would call me back with a settlement amount. instead now they're gonna do a cause and origin report. idk what they'll gain from it. there is nothing left but metal. it even melted my aluminum wheels and all the aluminum parts on the motor. heres whats left of the interior.
