There is no need to hoard gas, and one main reason why is because your car can burst into flames!

Firefighters say a Hummer caught on fire after one person filled up several containers of gasoline at a Florida gas station.

According to Fox 13, Citrus County Fire Rescue responded to the scene at a Texaco gas station late Wednesday morning. Upon arriving, they spotted a Hummer H2 in flames.

Firefighters say the driver had just finished filling up four fuel containers with gasoline and had put them in the back of the vehicle.

Crews were able to put out the flames, and officials say one person was injured but they refused transport.

It is unclear how exactly the fire started.
