Just one day after returning from his Nantucket vacation, President Biden’s hired Secret Service vehicles caught fire in a parking lot.
Last week, Biden and his family celebrated Thanksgiving on the opulent Massachusetts island. According to video initially obtained by the Nantucket Current, the Secret Service rented five automobiles from Hertz to transport the president and his family, and all five of them caught fire in the parking lot.
Firefighters are seen in footage dousing the burning remains of an engine block from one vehicle with water. A Chevy Suburban, Ford Explorer, Infiniti QX80, Ford Expedition, and a Jeep Gladiator were among the five automobiles.
The fire apparently only reached 40 feet from the jet fuel tanks at the Nantucket airport, where the cars were parked. Currently, it is uncertain what started the fire. The White House was contacted by Fox News for comment, but they did not answer right away.
In a statement to the Current, the airport reported that at around 5:22 am, “Airport shift staff observed an active fire in the rental car overflow area through the Airport’s Closed Circuit Television System.” The Nantucket Fire Department and Nantucket Police Department reacted to the fire in Airport-3 after staff members activated the Alert system and went there.
“Combined fire resources responded and contained the fire. Several vehicles were damaged. The Airport is currently coordinating with rental car agencies and agency partners to ensure scene safety, There is no longer an active fire at this time: the Airport is open, and aeronautical operations are not affected,” the statement added.

While on vacation in Nantucket, Biden celebrated Thanksgiving with his family and told reporters that they were not planning to run for president in 2024.
The Biden family resided in a seaside home near Nantucket Harbor. Ashley and Hunter Biden were among the family members that went on the trip. Thanksgiving has been celebrated on the island by the family for over 40 years.
The family’s escape was their first trip since they visited a different remote East Coast island in August, when Hunter Biden, the first lady, and the president traveled together on Air Force One to Kiawah Island in South Carolina.
For American presidents, outings on significant holidays and in the late summer are not unusual. During their terms in office, Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump all took comparable vacations. Bush frequently stayed at his ranch in Texas, while Obama and Trump both chose New England golf courses.
