We responded to a car fire this afternoon. The car was heavily involved on our arrival. We squirted water and took a report. There wasn't a square inch of it that hadn't been burned or melted and there was nothing we could have done to change that. Car fires are full of all sorts of nasty plastics, metals and such. In addition to probably implanting nasty things in my lungs, they carry a very unique smell. Several hours after the fire, I still smell the car now and then. I can't decide if its in my close, in my nose are both.
