A New York man who was trying to exterminate a colony of bedbugs ended up blowing up his own car, it has been reported.
The incident occurred on Tuesday in front of a supermarket in Long Island, N.Y.
According to New York Daily News, Scott Kemery poured alcohol over the insects and, apparently satisfied with the result, he lit up a cigarette. That was when everything went boom.
Police say Kemery was able to escape the explosion on his own with several 1st and 2nd degree burns. Two nearby cars were also damaged in the inferno.
