OWENSBORO, Ky. (FOX NEWS) - Surveillance video captured the moment that an e-cigarette battery apparently exploded in a Kentucky man's pants pocket.
The scary scene unfolded at an Owensboro gas station convenience store as the man went up to the counter, FOX News reported.
Footage shows the man run outside and try to pull the smoldering pants from his body while an employee with a fire extinguisher comes to his aid.
"I was behind the counter. Then there was fire. So I didn't know a thing about anything. I could see there was fire and I needed to stop that," clerk Jassi Singh recalled.
The man was taken to the hospital and treated for second-degree burns.
