Dog on fire

While I'm on this "stories about animals" kick ...

Small Wildfire Started By Burning Dog

... Northern Idaho firefighters say they’ve never seen anything like this: A couple driving a van on Saturday ran out of gas and pulled off Highway 95 near Culdesac.

Fire Chief Gary Gilliam says the motorist tried to prime the van’s carburetor with starting fluid.

But the carburetor backfired, throwing fire into the cab and onto a dog sitting on the lap of a female passenger.

... The dog rolled onto the dry grass, starting a fire.
