Vehicles cooked-to-order?

All joking aside, praying that no one was injured and no one loses a job.

A vehicle was being worked on while on a rack, someone was saudering the gas tank was leaking and a spark caught the gas on fire.

Cars have used plastic fuel tanks for 20 years now, it was an electric drill that punctured the tank, sparks from drill motor started fast spreading gasoline fire

Soldering might be better usage. But whatever you call it doing something with flame near a gas tank is, well, it’s this.
