SUV carrying barbeque grill explodes when woman lights up

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman sparked an explosion of a propane barbeque grill being transported in her SUV when police say she lit up a cigarette.

Orlando police Lt. Cindy Lane tells news outlets that the grill was turned on and the propane tank was open in the back of the red Kia Sorento as she left a barbeque at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on Sunday afternoon.

Lane says the woman and her husband were burned and their sports utility vehicle was severely damaged. The couple’s injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.
