: the contact stated there was a burning smell coming from the inside of the vehicle. The next day the vehicle caught on fire. The fire department was called and filed a report. Upon inspection the insurance company determined the electrical wiring in the rear defroster caused the fire. Previously, the vehicle was taken in for repair because the rear defroster, turn signals and the windshield wipers had failed.
