the bottom of the tank was still intack, the solenoid and starter were not touched. the connector from the wire harness to the engine harness looks to be where the fire started. Our guys have a bad habit of leaving the key on the run position all night long. I am thinking the charging wire fell off the regulator and grounded out and caught the leaves and oil (engine was not cleaned from last oil change) on fire. They also have a bad habit of using a jumper wire in the place of the fuses while on a job and then forgetting about it, that is what i'm going with untill the insurance company comes out and estimates and takes pictures. I am not aloud to fiddle with it untill then. And all the wires right up to the top are all burnt and fused together, can not tell if there is a fuse or not.
