The fire brigade said it all started round the battery. Spoke to the garage that did all the work on the van a few months ago and they said that everything should all be fused to prevent this happening so its more than likely something has happened on the battery?

Not sure whats going to happen with anything on the van at the moment as got to wait for the insurance company.:*

Gutted for you mate. Good job it was parked and not being driven :eek:
Sorry to hear what happened mate :(, would say it's an electrical fault for definate.

As above, but especially good job it didn't happen when sleeping in it!!!

Good to see he dressed up for the occasion!
I know most of the local fire brigade and I'm bloomin lucky that they came at all. They are very short on members at the moment so it could have all been a lot lot worse! Only filled it up with deisel on monday and its hardly been used!!

Everything had been done to the bus on the bodywork. Not a bit of rust on it as it had all been sorted in a full strip down and a full re-spray!! If its a total write off then may buy it back as there are some good stuff on it such as the wheels/stainless exhuast under a month old (that sounded awesome)
