I suppose it is possible or even probable that the fuel line ruptured at a point below the gas tank and by gravity alone the fuel feed the fire. I was thinking that the fire started in the engine compartment and the hood was opened to try and douse it.

I've experieneced engine fires before and they are very hard to extinguish when the fuel pump keeps pumping raw fuel, but as has been noted there are systems in place to prevent the fuel pump from operating when it shouldn't and they never fail in an emergency or Chrysler would let us know about the issue.

On the 2012+ there has been rumors that leaving things plugged into the acc ports, in the dash and the center console may be causing some fires.
Personally, I don't keep things plugged into those unless I'm needing to, and then I don't leave it in the Jeep alone.

I don't know if it is a +2012 issue only.....but I know people need to avoid cheap 12V adapters that are plugged into non-switched outlets. You don't want the adapter nor the item charging to overheat.
