Police: Man stealing gas uses lighter to check on progress
Glen Germain Junior of Warrensburg, New York was transferring the fuel from a truck to a gas can when he used a lighter to see how full the container had become. That sparked a fire that caused minor burns to his face and hands. The fire spread to a nearby forklift, which was destroyed in the blaze.
