Russians were told four reasons for the car fire 14:09

Speaking to, Nikita Rodionov, technical director of the international network of car service centers Fit Service, said that car fires are rare, but the risk of such situations increases in the summer months. According to him, most often cars burn due to malfunctions and non-compliance with safety measures.

“A common cause of fires is an electrical short circuit. Cables may have been installed incorrectly or damaged, and the equipment may not have been installed professionally. High voltage heats the cables and ignites nearby flammable materials,” Rodionov said.

According to him, if a vehicle owner detects a blown fuse in his car’s electrical system, it is necessary to find out why it failed. There is no need to replace it with a stronger one. This is the road to fire.

Leakage of flammable liquids is another cause of fires. Technical fluids may leak due to malfunctions. The expert explained that any spark contributes to the emergence of an open fire.

Failure to comply with safety regulations also causes fires. That’s why some car owners carry a can of fuel in the trunk. You can’t leave your car in the sun with that much luggage. For storage, you can use special closed containers that protect against overheating and spills.

You should not fill your vehicle with gas in hot weather. The expert warned that as fuel heats up, it will expand and leak out of the filler neck.
