Truck explosion ignites search for gas-theft ring

A truck explosion at a gas station north of Toronto sparked a police search for two men suspected of being part of an unusual gas theft ring.

The stolen truck burst into flames on Tuesday as the men began filling a 1,100-litre tank hidden in the back of the vehicle.

The men were using stolen credit cards to buy small amounts of gas at various stations in the Greater Toronto Area in an attempt to avoid raising suspicions over a single huge bill, the Toronto Star reports.

The truck burst into flames as the gas vapours began to accumulate. A quick-thinking bus driver and several other people grabbed an extinguisher and brought the fire under control.
