Employees #1 and #2, and the president/owner of an auto repair shop, were analyzing fuel line problems on a passenger vehicle. As the three men were removing the gas tank from the vehicle, gasoline started to flow out of the filler spout. The employees placed a drip pan underneath the vehicle. A few minutes later the president/owner observed a streak of fire heading in their direction. The employees in panic kicked over the drip pan, causing the fire to spread immediately. Employees #1 and #2 suffered 2nd- and 3rd-degree burns and were transported to the burn ward of the local hospital.
