This headline caught my attention: Man tries to put out garbage fire by driving over it with a van loaded with ammunition.

And no, this is not The Onion. Full story is here, with video: http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/article39003903.html

The article's full of instances of a man who should probably not be allowed to butter his own bread. But I liked this part particularly:

The deputy learned that the owner had been burning garbage in the field and accidentally let the fire get out of control. In an attempt to put the fire out, he drove his van back and forth over the flames.
This made matters worse, as the tires of the van caught fire. Realizing that the van was loaded with firearms ammunition and a full tank of gas, the driver evacuated the area for safety.
