    Huge fire at a Florida airport has destroyed more than 3,500 hire cars
    More than 3,500 rental vehicles were damaged or destroyed as a huge fire ripped through Florida airport lot
    Witnesses heard explosions and flames leaping high into the air at Southwest Florida International Airport
    Firefighters were able to contain the inferno with over 80 drops of water from two helicopters and firetrucks

    More than 3,500 rental cars were damaged or destroyed in a huge fire that burned near a Florida airport.

    The cars were in a grassy area used as an overflow lot by car rental companies at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers when thousands of vehicles caught fire.

    Firefighters managed to contain the blaze using helicopters to dump water on the flames that stretched across the lot late on Friday night.

    Witnesses said they heard multiple small explosions and flames leaping high into the air as the flames spread across the area.

    I read an article that they suspect that surfer dudes, disgruntled, or bored that they've been thrown off the beach, started a brush fire that spread into the grassy rental car parking lot. Usually all those cars would have been rented to tourists. I guess it attracted a big crowd of non isolating spectators.

    At first, I thought it was a photo of Minuteman burning in his new exhaust wrap.

    Just goes to show you, being confined to to your home watching movies and old reruns, I was totally unaware of the fire just 5 miles to the south of me.
