you say it takes a rather moronic individual to believe what the government says. That's why when the government say things like "don't panic". It has the opposite effect.
The woman, who is in her 40s, suffered 40% burns in the accident on Moorgate in the Acomb area on Thursday evening.
She has been taken to the burns unit at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield.
A fire service spokesman said: "Her daughter asked her mum for petrol because she had run out. The cooker was on and the fumes ignited."
Station manager Lee Smith, whose Acomb crew attended the fire, said: "The people were cooking their tea and dispensing petrol from a container to a glass jug.
"The vapour then ignited, the jug was then spilt which obviously ignited as well and the person involved in the decanting was consumed by the flames.
Her condition is not known but a North Yorkshire Fire Service spokesman described the burns as severe.

I'm sorry but I find this mass panic thing absolutely hilarious. Where I live, fuel shortages are a daily occurrence, we all live with it and carry on. Some people are just not well equipped for, ahem, "a crisis?" Its really funny watching how the large majority of the first-world population deal with petty things...epic fail.edit on 29-3-2012 by Brad-H because: (no reason given)edit on 29-3-2012 by Brad-H because: (no reason given)
