Guy Catches Self on Fire Siphoning Gas [Face Palm News]


Security cameras outside a store in Portland, Oregon captured a man accidentally setting himself on fire while trying to siphon gas from a U-Haul truck.

The man parked his van next to the truck and used siphoning tubes to steal the gasoline. But something must have caused a spark. A huge flash could be seen on camera, followed by the petrol pilferer running away with his pants on fire. The U-Haul truck and the van were destroyed in the fire.

Investigators are trying to track down the thief, whom they believe is likely in need of medical attention.
