Florida man trying to hoard gas burns down his own Hummer
Five-gallon fuel cans in the back seat?
A Florida man watched his own Hummer burn up in Homosassa Florida Wednesday, and it seems it was all his fault.
It seems that the man might have been swept up in all the panic buying of fuel that’s been happening this week as according to the Citrus County Chronicle, the unidentified driver had just filled not only his prized truck but four five-gallon gas cans at a local station. The man has just filled up when a fire somehow ignited. Fortunately, Citrus County Fire Rescue was quicky on scene and was able to extinguish the blaze; the Hummer was destroyed, but lucky for everyone several of the plastic gas cans were melted but did not explode.
The man was injured but refused medical treatment. The Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating. The State of Florida reported Tuesday that there were no fuel shortages only panic buying that was causing pumps to run dry at several stations.
