Catalytic converters get VERY HOT. Most people, don't know this! Parking a hot car on DRY grass can very easily start a FIRE.

I'm so confused! The headline states the catalytic conv. "MAY BE THE CAUSE" then the first paragraph states "was caused by a faulty conv. the forestry division CONFIRMED" which is it????
and HOW? Catalytic converters don't come apart! There's no "pieces" to collect. It's ONE piece. They can only come apart with alot of force & it's contained within the exhaust system. This explanation does NOT make any sense.
Unless of course.....it wasn't the cause at all.
