Default Fire

This is from another forum I belong to.
Does not seem like a good place to place the charger. I believe other factors were more to blame than the cart charger.



maintenance hangar was charred black, parts bins made from plastic were a pile of goo, gas cans melted, all the equipment blacked, a plane (Luscombe) was destroyed, a boat was destroyed, a golf cart destroyed. And it all started from a battery charger for the golf cart. It was sitting on a wooden shelf with other batteries, oil pans, gas cans and other flammables near by. It could have been a lot worse for sure. No one was hurt, but a lot of livelihood was damaged. Sad thing for sure. So, lesson here, UNPLUG your battery charges BEFORE you go home!!!! Don't rely on a the safety device to trip the breaker or burn the fuse.

I don't think it was the charger. More like improper storage of flammables.

Charger - electrical component that can make lots of heat.

Sitting on a wooden shelf - not bright, but not instant death

Gas cans, oil pans, flammables near said charger - now we're getting into the "Are you thinking of reproducing? Please don't." category.

The owner should be criminally charged for destroying a Luscombe.

I agree! I used to be a soaring pilot here in the high desert.



I wonder if it was an old core and coil charger or a new switcher.
