Uh oh!

Hey everyone, I was just on fox news' mobile app and read an article about a new 2017 F250 doing testing in death valley California and it caught on fire and burned to the ground. They said the fire started in the front left wheel well and quickly spread to engulf the entire truck. After a few explosions and some more burning all that was left was an engine, a frame and some melted piles of aluminum. Thought it was crazy as I was reading it. Anyone else hear about this or have any more information?

Yes, it was 6 posts down from yours

And no one has confirmed it was a 6.7. A few different comments from different people say that it looks like the gas engine, not 6.7.
