Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FFBEAT -

BERLIN: A 76-year-old Ger­man man try­ing to thaw out his car in­cin­er­ated it in­stead when he de­cided to speed things up by putting a blow heater un­der the bon­net.

Po­lice in the west­ern city of Hildesheim said the man left the heater on next to the frozen wind­screen washer tank and re­tur ned in­doors. Shortly af­ter­wards he heard two ex­plo­sions and re­turned to find the car ablaze.

In­clud­ing char­ring of the build­ing, to­tal dam­ages were es­ti­mated at € 40 000. – Reuters
