O M G! Such a bad fire. One of the beautiful looking ikon's burnt. I feel really sorry for the owner. How come the bonnet isn't blackened out by the fire?? Looks like the fire started in the passenger cabin..
Btw, it might be an engine explosion. Because of the look that the headlights and the grille are not there. If it fell down, it would be lying next to it..

this looks frightening. another poor LPG conversion? i guess we'l never know. don't these new cars have a fuel cut-off sensor something when there is a leakage??
more of these incidents makes me want to bring back the good ol' meat and pie engineered cars!!

The Ikon does have a fuel cut-off sensor, which cuts off fuel supply in the case of an impact. I am assuming that since there was no impact involved here, it didnt get trigerred.

I had a shock seeing the picture in the papers as I had an Ikon till just a month ago in this same color and with the spoiler. I then heaved a sigh of relief that it wasnt my old car when I noticed the blacked out b pillar.

Was it set ablaze by some pissed off bystanders after an accident? There seems to be a broken bottle near the front right tyre ...
