Default smoke, fire, explosion, 911, no more EZGO

Came home yesterday afternoon to a neighborhood of fire trucks and police cars. Neighbor's EZGO late 90s model was having problems, would go then stop, go again. They parked it their shed where they kept their brand new lawn mower and propane for their grill.

Per the fire inspector, A battery failed, shorted and started a fire within the golf cart, the entire shed caught fire, then the neighbor boy heard the explosion when the propane tank blew up.

Luckily the cart was in the shed and not the house as no one was home.

cheapjeep see if you can't get more info from the neighbor. Was he a BGW member? Was the cart charging? Was he having any problems with it? Did he recently rewire it? How old were the batteries? Sorry to hear the bad news, but maybe something to be learned here.

I've asked those questions and am waiting a reply, no they are not BGW members. Fire department says the fire started from overheated batteries. Since it was in the day around 2pm with no one home, my guess is it was on the charger, I wonder if the batteries were dry and over heated on the charger. Fire department agrees that if it was in the garage the house would most likely have been a total loss, thank goodness it was in a shed. Apparently it had been burning for a bit, then the propane exploded and alerted the neighbor boy who was home sick, he looked outside saw fire and called 911.
