“Saturday morning my brother in law and I loaded the truck (2014 f 150) with a few guns so that after driving him around to see some land around the area for his possible purchase we could go and shoot some clays and targets with his brother that we were supposed to pick up from the airport and our fathers, kind of the guys afternoon before the wedding.
Around 11:50am we were going down a highway through a small town in eastern WA. When a car flagged us down, I rolled my window down and as the driver says, ” Your truck is on fire,” a flame flares up right in front of my face. We both jumped out to see what was going on only to see flames boiling up from under the motor carriage area. We ran to the nearest building and tried to drag a hose over, but it wouldn’t reach. The local fire department showed up with their first truck and the pump wouldn’t stay on. This is when we stepped back and realized, as the airbags popped and flames roared, that we could do nothing. After about 20-25 minutes it was all over, the flames were gone and the cleanup began. In the pictures you can see a during the fire, after the fire what we find of my 260 ai that wears a 6-24 HST, as well as a few other pics.
I am hoping to get a chance to clean this gun up and be able to take a shot with it to see how well it held up to this fire, before I send it back to you guys. There were many items in the truck that were lost and more that were damaged (wish I had pieces of bino’s to send you, but they fried), luckily my bro in law and I were not and we made it the next day to the wedding so that I could get married.
Hope you can use these and my story in some way to help people realize what you guys offer in piece of mind.”
