    Why nosing into a spot isn't the greatest idea if you need to get out in a hurry.

    I don't know what caused this fire, but it is another reason to NEVER EVER USE A CAMP STOVE OR OPEN FLAME in your truck. If you have ever spilled your coffee and you use a camp stove you have everything needed to burn down your truck and all the stuff inside.

    You don’t even need those items. There’s plenty of other stuff that can roast your truck. Motor oil,coolant,WD-40,antigel all of which are usually carried in the side boxes!

    Don't bring a flame to a combustibles collection. Don't use camp stoves inside a flammable truck cab/sleeper. Camp stoves are not safe to use in a truck.

    Especially back in '18 when I was still Dedicated OTR, those "creative driver parking areas" at selected Tricky Twuck Slops made little difference whether backed or nosed in.

    "....... Bittle comes upon the driver of the burning truck just standing there ......"

    What has happened to humans? When chaos ensues, there is usually 1 maybe 2 people that will go into action, everyone else is either a deer in headlights, or video recording ####### cuz ya gotta get that clip to stoopidtube!
