Can't believe how heartless people can be. Get your facts straight before starting rumors that could ruin someone's life. Thank God no one died. Jobs can be replaced, not lives. Accidents happen....what is this world coming to. Campbellsville has some cruel heartless folks that are quick to judge.

FACT: A burning cigarette will NOT ignite gasoline. A spark from a lighter or flame WILL ignite gasoline!!!

Why don't you go out and try that and report back to us on how it worked...from your Hospital bed in the burn unit? I've seen a burning cigarette light gasoline. Gasoline vapors are flammable, period. You really need to check your science facts before you hurt yourself or someone else. There is a reason it says "NO SMOKING" at the gas pumps.

I agree with you 100%. I wouldn't risk doing something stupid. Dropping a partially-lit cigarette butt onto a puddle of gasoline is like playing Russian Roulette with your own life and the lives around you.

Ive seen many people talking on cell phone and having a lit cigarette right next to the gas spout. They should shut the pump down when they see that happening. Then they toss their cigarettes right at the pump. DUMB!

Its very simple to new users of the internet, just google cigarette ignites gas!! YOU will find NOTHING.....

I could and have threw a lit cigarette in a puddle of gas, and the gas will extinguish the cigarette!!

Now on the other hand, STATIC ELECTRICITY from your favorite sweater WILL ignite an explosion!!

Why are there NO SMOKING signs at the pumps? I'm still not going to risk my life or others around me by doing an unnecessarily stupid thing. You don't have to smoke a cigarette while you're pumping gas. You can wait until after you pay for your gas and get back into your vehicle. To do otherwise would indicate that the person is a lazy, careless, and negligent person.

What if you were wrong and caused a child to spend weeks suffering and fighting for their life in a hospital burn unit due to you throwing a cigarette in a gas puddle?

Is it worth the risk? I would assume you would be liable for any injuries since a sign reads, "DO NOT SMOKE" at the pump.

Funny thing its not gasoline that burns its the vapor if gas is in an open area it wont ignite without the proper concentration of parts per million however gas will ignite if sprayed due to it have oxygen availble to burn but gas while in its liquid form will not ignite simple chemistry from middle school people
