Fire at a petrol station - level 2
A woman in Israel came to a man who was filling his petrol tank at a petrol station. She asked him for cigarettes, but he refused to give her any.
The woman turned away, but came back later. She pulled a lighter from her pocket and ignited the petrol pump. The man pulled out the pump from his car – the place was immediately on fire. A security camera filmed everything. It is a shocking video.
Police arrested the woman shortly after the incident, and sent her for psychological tests. Luckily, the incident injured no one.
Difficult words: petrol tank (a space in the car to store petrol), refuse (to choose not to do something), ignite (to set on fire).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
