A few minutes later one of the workmen started the blow torch near by which ignited the gas and in his attempt to pick the can up to throw it out doors upset it and the blazing gas on greasy floor did the rest. Fortunately the house was well supplied with fire extinguishers which in the hands of the workmen of the garage extinguished the blaze before the arrival of the fire department.
