Man tries to put out fire by driving ammo-filled van over blaze

LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) – A man thought driving a van loaded with ammunition over a garbage fire in western Missouri would be a good way to extinguish the blaze.

He was wrong.

Clay County Sheriff’s spokesman Jon Bazzano told The Kansas City Star a deputy saw a van burning in a field outside Liberty on Tuesday and heard live ammunition going off. The deputy also found the vehicle owner nearby watching the fire.

The owner had been burning garbage when the fire got out of control. He tried to put the fire out by driving the van over the flames, but the van tires ignited, sending him scurrying because his vehicle was loaded with firearms ammunition and a tank of gas.

Firefighters controlled the fire. The man wasn’t immediately cited for any violations.
