Guy was using body spray inside a car, then lit a cigarette, BLAM! "You can't fix stupid!" I remember one time in the early seventies at Weapons Station Housing in Goose Creek. It was said the wife had cleared her hair spray nozzle down into the toilet. The guy came in and took a seat. Lit a cigarette and tossed the match into the toilet. Sever burns to a most tender part of the body. They used to use hairspray for potato cannons. Many blew apart because they weren't made out of heavy enough PVC. These sprays are dangerous. Keep that in mind next time you are driving down the road and decide to apply deodorant. They have always said Cigarette smoking has it's hidden dangers.
Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

Ustawas the propellant in spray cans was a refrigerant gas - FREON. That caused a hole in the ozone layer.
Now they use ISOPROPANE BUTANE as a propellant.
 
Propane? Think gas barbecues. Butane? Think disposable lighters.
 
Duh! Sounds like someone was in competition for the DARWIN award.

I was at the Naval Safety Center when this incident occurred, and remember reading the accident report. It was one of the most read reports at the time.
