Here's a picture of what's left of a truck after a fire erupted from under the hood. The driver told me she paid a friend to "fix" the ignition wiring instead of taking it to a shop to save money. She had just picked up the truck and was taking it for a test drive around the block. She smelled a strong odor of gasoline as she drove. This is proof that leaking gas and faulty wiring are a bad combination. The only thing left inside was the copper wiring from the stereo.
