Siphoning Gas While Smoking Leads to Serious Fire


Occurred on March 11, 2020 / Roseville, California, USA

Info from Licensor: "I had left my 2000 Toyota Camry in my mechanic's parking lot overnight and some jackass tried to siphon gas from it using an electric pump while smoking. It's anyone's guess whether the device sparked or if it was the cigarette, but my tank was exactly half-empty: prime conditions for a large amount of gasoline to build up in gaseous form and primed for an explosion."
