American Military News by Cliff Pinckard - The Plain Dealer   May 18, 2021

A Hummer burst into flames just moments after it left a gas station with the vehicle filled with containers of gasoline, apparently loaded up with extra fuel because of fears of shortages, reports say.

Firefighters found the Hummer H2 engulfed in flames Wednesday near a Texaco gas station, WFLA Channel 8 reports. One person was injured but refused treatment.

Officials tell Fox 13 the owner of the Hummer had just put four five-gallon gas containers into the back of the vehicle. How the fire started is unknown. It took firefighters about 10 minutes to put it out.
