  Pick-Up On Fire
by mcpangie

There are lots of ways that cars can catch on fire. But one that hits the news a lot in Northern Nevada these days is because people haul extra gas with them. These days with the price of gas 40 cents a gallon cheaper in Nevada, every time I go to Costco I see people from California filling up their vehicle and taking 50+ extra gallons back in gas containers. One lady blew herself and her SUV up when she decided she'd smoke. That wasn't the cause of this fire, these people were moving out of California.
