Default 2010 Dodge Ram Hemi Engine Fire

I was on the beach in 4wd and had the engine catch fire. The engine stalled, I looked down and then smoke came out from under the hood then flames started to come out of it. I wasn't towing anything and not stuck so really was not pushing it hard.

Any ideas on what may have happened?

Any other reports of engine fires that you may know of?

It looks to be totaled, all the plastic in the engine bay is gone, paint is blistered and grill is melted. Not sure if the engine will turn over.

I really had no other issues prior to this. I had one recall fixed, I think it was an A/C switch or something and then had to take it in TWICE because the gas cap light kept coming on and it would not go into ECO mode.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. Sorry about the Fire! I haven't read about any fire issues here in the many months of posting and reading. Hopefully the insurance or factory will make things right.

And sorry for the fiery warm first post!

Thanks! I was in the Outer Banks when it happened. I had it towed to the Dodge dealer in Nags Head and the insurance adjuster will be out in the next few days.

The only ones I've heard off were deliberately set.
Sorry to hear about you losing your truck this way. Hope insurance does the right thing.
