Car Bursts Into Flames When Driver Uses Hand Sanitizer While Smoking

A Maryland man learned the hard way that smoking and hand sanitizer don’t mix.


Fire officials say the man was using hand sanitizer while smoking a cigarette when the sanitizer ignited, setting the entire car on fire. He ended up being taken to a hospital with minor burns.
Many types of hand sanitizers contain alcohol or other flammable substances and can be dangerous to use when smoking in a small, unventilated area such as a car.
