Leaving a Bottle of Water in Your Car Could Start a Fire

This is a safety hazard that you would probably never think of. If you leave a clear water bottle in your vehicle where it’s visible to sun light, there is a chance it can start a fire.

When the sunlight hits the bottle at the right angle, the water inside can act as a lens which can heat up to over 200 degrees. When that energy is focused on one point, possibly in your vehicle, it can start to burn.
