I know a guy who lit a fire in a car! A truck actually - a new truck and it wasn't his. He was duck hunting with some friends and he fell in the water (yes, he is a dork...in every sense of the word). He went back to the friend's truck to dry off, and decided to pull the paperwork from the glove compartment out, put it on the floorboard, and start a small fire. He didn't destroy the vehicle though, but it was the last time he was taken on a duck hunt.
I have several stories about this idiot. Most cannot be told in public.
