Last night at 11.45, someone parked and torched one of these about 5 metres from our bedroom window.

It burnt with a lot of explosions, and took an hour to put out. We are buying a fire extinguisher today (we hadn't noticed we didn't have one in the house) and are going to get much much more emergency ready.

Check the price of those things - $230 000 NZ. Golly.

Wow! Explosions like movie explosions? Wow! Scary!

Not as huge as some of the movie effects, but certainly flame balls over a metre across... yeah definitely scary

I wonder who has that kind of money/lack of regard for money to just set the thing on fire?

My gosh! You'd think that even if it was nicked, you'd be able to on-sell it hot to make some money out of it... maybe it was revenge? Because I can't see criminal sense in it. Must have been scary for you though!
