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
