Deputies in Clay County, Florida,are looking for who or what caused a patrol car to catch on fire, and their main suspect is the freshly cut grass the car was parked on.
The so-called spontaneous combustion happened on Saturday in Orange Park while the deputy was parked on the side of the road during a traffic stop.
The car burst into flames seemingly without cause while the deputy was inside. An investigation is underway but no foul play is suspected.
Instead, authorities believe the freshly cut grass beneath the car got too hot when it touched the vehicle's undercarriage and sparked the fire. The deputy wasn't seriously injured but was taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor smoke inhalation.
