Leaving Bottled Water In Your Car Could Start A Fire
Advertisement
As a major heatwave grips most of the U.S., fire officials are warning a water bottle and humid temperatures could start a fire in your car.

Manlius, New York Firefighter Jay Symonds says the water and plastic creates ‘a magnifying effect, potentially setting upholstery or a piece of plastic on fire.’

This is poss, a little like making fire from water by carving ice to form a lens.

But really, if this is going to happen to you you just have to put it down to a really shitty day. Can’t go about life hiding water bottles under the seat in fear they will harness the Sun’s rays & set fire to the Maybach.

That would be Fringable.

So why is there only 1 anti-monopoly commission eh?

The real reason not to leave plastic water bottles in a hot car is that chemicals from the plastic (sun and heat break down plastic) can leach into your drinking water. Not good.

I did read an article on this regarding a link to breast cancer. That’s actually what I thought the thread was about at first glance.

Possible, but rather improbable.

RE: Leaving Bottled Water In Your Car Could Start A Fire
While I'm not sure about the lensing effect causing a fire I think it could happen...what I do know for a fact as I've seen it first hand is a "Bic" lighter will explode if left in a car under the right conditions

Myself and several coworkers were outside taking a break from the summer sun under a parking lot awning when we hear a loud bang that came from nearby parked cars.

It was as loud as a 12ga shotgun.

We walked down and started looking to see if we could tell where it came from.

On the pavement next to a car with a open window were parts of a Bic butane lighter ...and inside the back window and on the seats were several pieces of the same cig lighter .

Just glad it didn't explode flammable and catch the car on fire .

My dad worked as a number cruncher for a government health agency.

Much about plastics leaching into food causing cancer is not made public. It is worse than smoking. Way worse. When he came across the first meta study he called me at work and said never to microwave food in plastic containers. He also said not to let bottled water sit in the sun for the same reasons. The more bendy the plastic the worse. Heated plastic, and sunlight with plastic are both terrible.

I can quite believe it. Thanks for the post.
