Suffered 2nd degree burns and hanging flesh on my arm when my nylon work suit caught fire from a hot nugget from the cutting torch. I was on my back up under the truck with little room to move, but managed to get out and extinguish the flame before I was burned alive. Fire is nothing to mess with.

As a technical inspector at the dragstrip, that is my biggest fear, that a driver will burn up. I cannot think of a more horrible way to die.
