A dashcam captured footage of a woman pumping gas at the station. She makes a not-so-wise decision to use a cigarette lighter near the gas cap to defrost it or use it as a light to see. As soon as she ignites the lighter near the tank, the side of her car catches on fire.


According to the Daily Mail, the incident happened in the remote city ofSurgut, located in Serbia.

As the woman panics and tries to extinguish the fire by blowing and fanning it, the driver pulls away without helping.
