woke up tp a truck roast

Yesterday I woke up in the middle of the night with smoke in my house and found my 2003 F350 being the fire. Just wanted to ask everyone of anyone other than me experiencing this. I have been doing some research and found reason only for 6.0 fires. speed control and ground strap. I had it plugged in and I suspect the block heater. wont know till the inspector looks at it. Just trying to get some back ground info so I'm ready with the insurance co. thanks

Mudrunningpig had a fire in his old one a while back. I think it was a wire short under the seat.

like jered said, I had a fire in my old rig back in April. Claims adjuster said it was a faulty wire under the seat that ran the seat belt light. It caused 23k in damage. My insurance company took care of me.
