Mowed lawn for approx. 1.5 hours, after finished, turned off mower and started into house. Less than 1 minute later heard a muffled pop sound, looked back and trackor was fully engulfed in flames.

Fire Department responded. Tractor was totally destroyed.

Fire Chief suspected there was some issue with the fuel tank which is located in the engine compartment.
