Frank's towed Blazer exploding

I don’t think the explosion was due to Frank’s towing. Years ago, my grandfather had a Blazer, which eventually went to my oldest cousin and his family, who drove it for years. One day it was sitting in their driveway, and just burst into flames! for no reason! As they all stood there watching it, astounded, my cousin’s youngest daughter astutely observed, “well, it IS called a ‘Blazer’”.
