Burning car at Epcot

A friend at Epcot posted a picture of a car that was burning in the parking lot. He thought it was hit by lightening. Anyone know anything?

How would a bolt of lightning light a car on fire?

Like in xmen or transformers?

It was lightning pretty bad yesterday and the storms were pretty rough. But I also heard that the car got struck by lightning and it caught fire. Which Is quite possible and I do believe it was also on the local news this morning.

Thank you for sharing. I am glad that the rental company and Disney took such good care of them. I don't know why this bothered me so much but glad to know the people are okay.
