Disinfected Hand Caught Fire

Published torsdag 24 september 2009 kl 15.38
A fire hazard?

And a nurse in northern Sweden whose hand caught fire when she touched a metal trolley after having washed her hands in alcohol-based disinfectant.

One theory is that it was the static electricity from her touching the trolley, that set the alcohol alight. The nurse had just before the incident patted a dog, and touched a pair of synthetic trousers, which might have something to do with it. The woman escaped without any serious injury.
