The cars can be replaced,the life cannot. Maybe the insurance company will stand up do right!

Do ya think with all the cars and money involved that a couple of fire extinguishers were too expensive to have on hand? I do a lot of work in my garage on vehicles, and I always have 2 of them readily handy.

In hindsight there is always a better way. I doubt if any of else have not experienced something similar. That's why we should not be to critical of him.

Sounds like insurance fraud and I'm sure the insurance company will be looking into that also.

The good thing about this story, is that no-buddy was killed, and the cars can be replaced with sumthin' else.

When I lived in (an anonymous, backwards southern state), I saw people actually smoke cigarettes while gassing up their cars at the pump.

I wonder if this guy is from that same state?

I doubt it was fraud. I drove by this fire - it was way too close to the house. Plus the guy was burned - kind of risky and painful just for the money, no?

Yes he prob made a mistake...But the garage was in total flames with in 4 mins. Their is not a extinguisher that is going to up that fire out. I dont think this is fraud as some of these cars he will never replace. Some people need not to ASSume things.

The lights with the light bulb, the ones with the reel n cord are bad BAD news. I was working on a cars gas line up on the lift n there was some gas on the floor that leaked out ( about 16oz.) and i droped the light n poof a nice size fire. When that light bulb breaks quess what happens? I dont use those lights no more. I updated the battery stick lights with no electric n cords. You think the guy would have known that.

I am sad to see the cars be lost, but am sure the owner was insured. If not, well shame on him!

Sorry, I just struggle with articles about rich people losing their toys.
