My 2008 cadallic Dts was trying to start on its on. The keys were on the table and the spare key hanging on the key rack. In doing so it caused my car to catch on fire which caught my garage on fire. My family was all in bed when we were awoken by a person passing by the house and recognized that the light he was seeing was a fire. In return our lives were saved, also it was detected the next day that our spoke detector battery was dead. We thankful to god above for the young man who just happened to be a firefighter and our hero.
