There was a fire under the hood which caused 2 explosions. The first explosion appears to have been an electrical fire. The second explosion was in the gas or fuel line.

My wife was driving the vehicle when she smelled a burning odor. She looked behind her and saw flames coming out of the right rear side panel next to the third seat. She pulled over and called 911. The police and fire dept. Came and put out the fire. The fire dept. Said it appeared to be caused by an electrical short.
