Cub Cadet50" lawn tractor

Hb Mar 17, 2019

After safety checking over my Cub Cadet XT1 LT50 (50") 24HP Kohler lawn tractor on March 4, 2019, I started it up to cut a small part of my yard for 15 minutes. 10 minutes into cutting the grass, the engine started backfiring. I stopped the tractor and turned it off. After lifting the hood, a fire flamed up from the front left side of the engine. I got away from the tractor due to the gas tank being half full.

I went on the internet and discovered that I am not the first person to experience the lost of his tractor for a completely unknown reason. I had not seen or heard of this happening prior to my incident. Can you explain why?

See attached pics of a almost 3 year tractor burning. I am H. Barge and can be reached at [protected]. I am requesting credit for purchasing a new lawn tractor.
