Exclamation Jeep Wranglers catching on fire???

My dad just emailed me a link to a story about some recalls of other Jeep models which later mentioned the following:

In a separate incident, fires in Jeep Wranglers are the subject of a document recently filed on the NHTSA website. The agency said the investigation was prompted by eight complaints from Wrangler owners, seven of whom asserted that the fire or “symptoms of the impending fire” started while the vehicle was being driven.

In a complaint filed in January, an owner reported that he was driving to work when vehicles approaching from the opposite direction flashed their lights. “I looked in the rearview mirror to see if there was someone behind me and saw a trail of smoke from my Jeep,” the owner wrote. By the time he stopped and grabbed his belongings, he said, “The front passenger compartment was already fully engulfed in flames.” The vehicle was destroyed in the fire.

Another owner told NHTSA that his Wrangler was destroyed by fire just after he noticed an “unknown liquid burning down to the ground from the engine area.” There were no reports of injuries related to the Wrangler investigation.
