How does a hooked up battery cause this fire when the Camaro is in an enclosed trailer, stopped at a stoplight intersection. Why did it burn at a stoplight intersection with trailer ramp down.?

.. hooked up battery causes a short. the short causes sparks, thus a flame, and then fuel lines etc.. It may be an enclosed trailer, but there is still oxygen in there to fuel the fire. Maybe they saw smoke coming out and opened the rear? Its location has nothing to do with the how and why the fire started. Not too hard to imagine..

The ramps were down probably because they were trying to save it

Shame about the car, wonder if they are going to try to salvage any of it or just get another.

Believe it or not it can probably be saved more than you think. Years ago I sold a couple 1st Gens that were pretty much complete rust bucket for $3,500 each. Everything needed to be replaced. At least that car probably still has a working motor, trans, rear end, and suspension. New paint and interior would be needed for sure.

Trailer on the other hand is probably not worth touching.

She should be thanking the firefighters for saving the truck...not screaming at them while they are trying to do thier job.
