Why leaving a water bottle in your car could be dangerous

by: Scott Andera | Palm Beach Post Updated: Aug 21, two thousand seventeen – Two:21 PM

On scorching summer days, taking a nice cold bottle of water for your drive seems like a natural fit.

But it could lead to startling consequences, firefighters say.

One Oklahoma fire department and a power company in Idaho recently demonstrated how a partly packed water bottle could magnify the sun`s rays and begin a fire.

David Richardson, of the Midwest Fire Department in Oklahoma, told KFOR the sunlight «uses the liquid and the clear material to develop a focused plank, and sure enough, it can actually cause a fire.»

«The sunlight will come through (the bottle) when it`s packed with liquid and act as a magnifying glass as you would with regular optics,» said Richardson.

A test at the fire department, outside a car, showcased sunlight going through a water bottle raised the temperature of a lump of paper to two hundred fifty degrees, KFOR reported.

Representatives from Idaho Power also showcased the same potential problem in a Facebook post in July, with a movie displaying direct sunlight going through a water bottle leaving smoke and burn marks in car seats before the bottle was liquidated.

While the risk of fire is relatively petite, officials recommend keeping water bottles out of unattended vehicles, KFOR reported.
