Had the same thing happen to me, it took about 4 weeks for the smell to go away.

yeah, we see that all the time. Here, we just put in on a rack and clean all of that off. It occasionally takes a bit for it to burn off but if you don't get it mostly off it will smell like that for a long time. The ones we've seen here is a plastic bag hits the exhaust pipe underneath.

Highly unlikly to cause a fire. Now with out a heat shield and parked on some dry grass or pine needles and that's a different story.

Be glad it was just a plastic bag, the very first thing I hit with mine was a baby skunk!

How did you manage to high a racoon exactly? They won't let me get near enough to pass the peace pipe...
