burnedEASTPORT, New York – Police say a Long Island man set his rental car ablaze while trying to kill bedbugs inside the vehicle.

Scott Kemery suffered first- and second-degree burns in the incident Tuesday outside an Eastport supermarket.

Police say the Bridgehampton resident poured alcohol over the insects, then sat in the car and lit a cigarette, setting off the blaze.

Detective Sgt. Edward Fitzgerald told Newsday that someone told Kemery that if he saturated the bedbugs with alcohol it would kill them.  More

    In case you have crabs, get a small club, some gas and a razor. First shave one side then set fire to other side, when they come running out you club them problem solved ;-)There was a guy that take a bath with kerosine to get rid of bugs, decide to make it a candle lite bath Oppps Nope he lived so he didn’t make the Darwin Award!!!
