Is this an example of nature's way to remove idiots from the gene pool?

I saw the video on the news this morning. That can't be alcohol. Alcohol doesn't burn with a flash yellow flame and black smoke. It had to have been an oil based hydrocarbon. It may have been lacquer thinner, acetone or gasoline. I think there's more to this story than bedbugs.

I don't know the details but there were two other cars involve and once the alcohol burned off the plastic and seats would start to burn. The video may have started at that point. The large explosions was the gas tank.

The question I have is what were those bangs that sounded like gun fire? About 6 or 7.
Spray cans???

Here's a different angle.
