A 76-year-old German man, tired of waiting for ice on his car to thaw, decided to speed things up by using a blow heater. He installed the device under the hood and went indoors for a while.
But the sound of two explosions brought him back outside. He alerted fire services to prevent the fire from spreading to the house.
Damages to the house and car amount to $56,240. Patience, my friend, is a virtue.
