Unhappy Re: Renault Scenic - Fire risk - Door mirror control

I have a 2001 scenic that was not recalled but went up in flames yesterday 25/9/2012. It was used for the school run and then parked up at 16:30. Over 3 hours later at 19:45 we got a knock on the front door to say our car was on fire. The fire brigade afterwards said it appeared some wiring in the door had been the cause of the fire and asked where my mirror controls used to be on the door! Research on the internet has lead my here, to find that this appears to be a know fault with the door mirror controls. If the fire had got out of control and fuel tank exploded it would have taken out my house. The fire brigade said I was very lucky.
