    Some what agree with you "real kujuma, kodial". But here responsibility of vehicle owner also contribute such incidents. Have you heard of any one replacing of fuel lines inside engine compartment periodically? Only replace when fuel start leaking. Now a days majority of low pressure fuel line are made of rubber tubes(Cost reducing), which have a life span as they are at high temperature zone. Due to aging and other ambient factors, they become hard/brittle/break and fuel leak. If the fuel (Petrol or diesel) spill on the exhaust manifold which is red hot, no doubt fatal fire hazard.
