Excerpt:

Claudus Oliveira owns TownCar SF, which operates this limo.

"This was a fire that happened, an electrical fire," he said. "It's a manufacturer defect."

Oliveira says the limo is 3-years-old and has been inspected and maintained. He's well aware of what happened on the San Mateo Bridge May 4, and says he's concerned with maintenance.

"I'm speechless, because this is a new car," he said. "You can see my tires, brand new tires, I keep great records of the cars."
