WARNING: Leaving A Water Bottle In A Hot Car Is A Fire Hazard

By Brad Haynes

It sounds crazy, but leaving a water bottle in a hot car is a recipe for disaster.

Turns out that the bottle, along with the water, serve in a similar fashion as a magnifying glass. As the sun’s ray is projected through the water bottle, it’s like a laser. The liquid and the clear material form a focused beam that can actually cause combustion, and a fire.

Take a look above to see exactly what could happen. Chances are fairly small for a fire in the car, but who wants to risk it. Keep it simple. Take that water bottle with you when you leave the car.
