Employee Sustains Heat Burns On Legs When Fire Ignites

On November 12, 2013, Employee #1, with East Coast Shoring Inc., and a coworker were working outside, repairing an excavator. Employee #1 started a fire in a steel container to keep warm. Due to lack of oxygen, the fire smoldered and appeared to go out. Employee #1 decided to restart the fire and poured gasoline into the container. Then, Employee #1 was planning to ignite the gasoline, thus reigniting the fire. As Employee #1 poured the gasoline, the gasoline fumes ignited and traveled into the plastic gas can, which then exploded. Employee #1"s legs became covered in gasoline, which ignited. Employee #1 was hospitalized with heat burns on his legs.
