Danger Using Gasoline

The following article is from the Bend Bulletin newspaper.  Four injured in an explosion that could have been prevented.
An explosion in the backyard of a Sisters home reportedly injured four people Saturday evening.
The blast, in the 300 block of West Oak Avenue, was reported shortly after 6 p.m. Four people at the home were burned, three of whom were transported by helicopter to St. Charles Bend for treatment.
Sgt. Ty Rupert, of the Deschutes County Sherriff’s Office, said two or three of the injured have been or will be taken to the Oregon Burn Center at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland for further treatment
Rupert said it appears the injured people had lit a fire in a backyard fire pit and attempted to revive their dying fire by putting gasoline on it.

One of the injured has died from burns.

Can gasoline be used to start a fire?  Is there a safe way; sure....but not this way.  More on this later.
