After Arriving Home Safely From A Long Highway Drive (7 Hrs), Our Car Sat For About 5 Hours. When I Started The Car, I Smelled Smoke And Heard A Unusual Rubbing Noise Under The Hood. After Popping The Hood, I Saw Smoke Pouring Out Of The Alternator. I Turned Off The Engine, Went Inside To Get A Fire Extinguisher. The Fire Was Still Burning, But Seemed To Be Inside The Alternator. I Extinguished It And Hopefully Saved Serious Engine Damage. The Car Was Towed To The Dealer, And Is Awaiting Service Now.
