We endlessly tell all our kids not to play with fire and not to play in the junk yard cos it is dangerous. Then as adults we go out and do dumb stuff like this.

The empty gas tanks of old cars are a real danger. The fumes in an empty tank are far more likely to ignite than a full tank, if a naked flame is placed nearby. Also with old cars the materials used for seats etc may not meet current fire safety standards.

Are any commercially available camera flashes rated for spark safety? Open flame or not, there are a lot of fire hazards people ignore. Even fine dust and the like can be horribly dangerous around things like a camera flash firing off, gas vapours more so.

That's really sad. Sounds like the assistant/model is battling for her life. A couple of years ago I was cleaning up around a large firewood pile. I had piled some rotting, junk wood up into a pile about three feet in diamter and a couple of feet tall intending to burn it. A storm front was moving our way and I wanted it burned before the rains got here, figuring the rains would help quench the glowing embers in the ashes. I poured *maybe* a cup of gas onto the pile of old wood and let it soak for a minute or so. When the match landed on the pile immediately a flame spread outwards in a ring and in all directions for probably thirty feet. I was standing only a few feet from the wood pile when I lit it. Thankfully the air was "heavy" which forced the gas vapors to stay low and the flame passed by me quickly. Even as an adult, this really clued me in on how far gasoline fumes will spread out. In an enclosed area, such as a car, where the vapors would have been contained it would have been disastrous.

I wonder if they *smelled* the gas fumes and still used open flames? Gasoline fumes are much more flammable/explosive than liquid gasoline.

Luckless, you are very correct about certain dust conditions being explosive...grain mills, etc.,.

Very tragic accident,
Ed

I'm doing a trash the dress shoot soon. I was planning to set fire to the brides dress while she stands on a railway line that runs through a junk yard.
