The new Ford Bronco seems to find all sorts of ways to get talked about. Teasers, spy shots, announcements, and so on: we’ve reported on its looks, its special features, the versions, the planned release dates. Lately, we've also been talking about slight production delays.

This time, a new twist, as two prototypes of the SUV were heavily damaged when the trailer transporting them caught fire. To be clear, the vehicles themselves were in no way the cause of the blaze; rather, the fire broke out in the trailer carrying them.

Images of the two damaged two-door models have been shared on the Bronco6G online fan forum, which show them in rough shape. The photos were taken at a rest stop in Greenville, Illinois. It’s believed the fire was caused by the negligence of the truck driver who drove too long with a flat tire or with stuck brakes; in either event, extreme heat caused the blaze, and the two new Broncos inside were sitting ducks.

Ironically, the company that transports the vehicles is called Reliable.

As for the two Broncos, it looks like they were damaged mostly by heat, as they are not burned. They were, however, covered with debris from the trailer wall that left its residue on the vehicles. Some plastic parts, such as the mirrors, fender openings and grille, literally melted. The tires and roof, however, remained surprisingly intact.
