If you smoke, put gasoline in the trunk...if it spills in the trunk, so what...you'll still be alive.

Doesn't matter if you smoke or not, never carry gasoline in the passenger compartment.

KFOR made it sound like the car caught on fire because it is a TOYOTA. Which moron carries gasoline and cigarettes in a car? Chances are he forgot he had gas in the car and tried to light one up.

Could using a cell phone have caused the fumes to ignite? They have warnings on gas pumps not to use your phone while filling the tank.

I knew Coke, I'm sorry that he has passed, but all I have to say is Karma hit back with a 2x4 and now my friends no longer have to worry about him harassing them.

I believe KFOR needs to issue a retraction here - the Toyota did not ignite - the GAS being carried INSIDE of it did. The manufacturer of the vehicle has no bearing on the story other than trying to sensationalize it. If you carry gasoline in the passenger compartment of the vehicle and you smoke at the same time, something bad will happen regardless of who makes the vehicle.

I am disappointed in KFOR.

He didn't smoke. The cigarettes were from a previous passenger.

Then it could have been from a lighter or even the extreme heat we have been having. The fumes must have filled the car cabin and a cell phone like carol mentioned or a spark or heat must have set the fire

Obviously a product of the Texas school system. The article didn't say anything about anyone passing. Read it again moron. Maybe Karma needs to hit you with a 2x4 to reset your brain.

And for you morons that believe that cell phones ignite gas fumes, get a life. There has never been a documented case of a cell phone igniting a fire at a gas pump. The real cause is static electricity caused by getting in and out of your car. Oh and the next time a flight attendant says that it is an FAA regulation not to use your cell phone on a plane, you can call them on that too. It’s an FCC regulation and has nothing to do with the “navigation systems” but in reality has to do with the fact your would be hitting thousands of cell towers at a time. And the statement about the weather being hot may have caused this? Find a brain and use it.

You really didn't read the article did you? It says he was driving a Toyota. It says nothing about the Toyota causing the fire.

You should be more concerned with your reading comprehension. It says he was driving a Toyota. It says nothing about the Toyota causing the fire.

The headline says the Toyota Ignites. That does clearly say it was the car that ignited, not the gas.

Never said the Toyota caused the fire, I just stated he didn't smoke.
