Phoenix Parking Lot Devastated by Propane Fire; Customer Shares Heartbreaking Experience

PHOENIX, AZ — An off-site airport parking lot near Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport turned into a haunting graveyard of burnt and charred cars after a massive propane fire on Thursday, July 20, 2023. Returning from their long trips, Valley residents were met with heart-wrenching scenes of destruction.

Among those affected was Kathleen Moody, who had just returned from a week-long trip to Colorado with her family. Shocked and overwhelmed, they discovered their once beloved Lexus reduced to a mere metal frame and ash. For Moody’s daughter, a yoga instructor, the car held memories as well as her livelihood, with most of her equipment stored inside.

Expressing her disbelief and grief, Moody shared, “I never thought I’d be involved in something like this. That car is my daughter’s only means of transportation, and her livelihood is in that car, so that’s what’s killing us now.”

The parking lot company, Sundance Airport Parking, offered a shuttle service back to the airport, but the family still felt disoriented, having just returned from their trip. “I have no idea how we are getting home, so we are figuring out how to deal with the shock first and then how we are going to get across town,” Moody said.

Sundance Airport Parking expressed its regret in a statement, announcing that they were cooperating with the fire department to determine the cause of the fire and were reaching out to all customers currently parked in the lot to inform them of the situation.

Despite the devastation, Moody remained resilient, saying, “Trying to stay positive. That’s the only thing we’ve got right now.”
