Default patriot fire

My daughter was driving my Jeep Patriot today. She noticed some smoke coming out of the hood & pulled over to the shoulder & got out just in time. By the time the fire dept got there, 10 min or so, The car was completely engulfed & it burned to the ground. It was a 2007 with 14000 mi on it & was in perfect condition with no problems at all up until today. She said she smelled a little electrical smoke ( like burning plastic)just before & thought it was coming from the side of the road. It obviously started in the eng. compartment & was electrical in nature. I posted this for 2 reasons 1, to warn all other owners about a severe problem & 2, to ask if anyone else has any similiar experiences with their Jeep Patriots.
For what it's worth there was no fishing equipment in the car.
