  • Hand sanitizer can ignite if left in a hot vehicle: Alberta doctors

The statement comes after a Wisconsin fire department took to Facebook to warn about the dangers of leaving hand sanitizer in vehicles on a hot day.

The Western Lakes Fire District in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin posted a picture on social media showing the interior of a driver's side door burned and melted.

The National Fire Protection Association in the USA has made a video on the flammability of alcohol-based hand sanitizers. If you keep it outside next to your grill or in your auto, the sun can hit the bottle, causing magnification of the light, and lead to a fire.

"Please respect the possibilities and be fire safe", the fire department urges. It looks as if it was sacked upon from a shotgun from close range, but the damage was actually caused by a small bottle of hand sanitizer.
