(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – As summer weather peaks, Idaho State Police are advising drivers to take precautions about avoiding vehicle fires. Lt. Chris Weadick says cars run hot this time of year, especially when running air conditioning systems, leading to a higher risk of overheating and fires. They encourage drivers to check under their hoods to remove any debris near their batteries and to have their vehicles undergo regular maintenance procedures. Experts also caution that drivers should turn off their air conditioners if they believe overheating may be an issue.
