Be careful when you’re driving with gas cans.
The Colonial Pipeline shutdown has resulted in gasoline shortages in the southeastern United States, and people have been making the situation worse by hoarding fuel. Someone trying to stockpile gas in a Hummer H2 ended up with a burned-out wreck of an SUV when the vehicle somehow ignited.
The incident took place in Homosassa, Florida, on the morning of May 12, according to the Citrus County Chronicle. The Citrus County Fire Rescue was on the scene at 10:59 AM and quickly quelled the flames by 11:09 AM. When the fire was out, the crew found four, five-gallon gas cans with fuel in them in the rear cargo area of the Hummer. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
