LOS ANGELES - Three teenagers were burned Saturday, one critically, when an aerosol spray they were inhaling to become intoxicated burst into flame inside their car, authorities said.
Two boys, aged 16 and 15, and a 15-year-old girl were in a parked car "inhaling aerosol spray for the purpose of euphoria" when one of them began smoking, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The flame ignited the aerosol, resulting in a "fireball" inside the car, he said.
The girl was taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital where she was listed in critical condition with burns to 27 percent of her body, including her arms, back, and face.
The boys were listed in fair condition, he said.

To us, they're just idiots.
To mental and physical physicians everywhere, they're job security.
it's true, you can't outsource idiocy.
I don't find that particularly funny.
Of the very few things that can elicit a sympathetic reaction from me, a carful of druggies that are too stupid to realize the inherent dangers of open flames inside an enclosed space filled with flammable aerosols isn't one of them.
In fact, I do find people that stupid particularly funny.
"a carful of druggies that are too stupid to realize the inherent dangers of open flames inside an enclosed space filled with flammable aerosols"
Or perhaps they had never been told about the dangers of that?
Why do you feel the need to judge others and lord your supposed intellectual superiority?
Everyone makes mistakes and poor choices sometimes - it's not limited to those who substance abuse. A little compassion wouldn't go amiss - you're bound to need some in your life sooner or later.
Gee, that's funny; everybody else knew not to do drugs, and flame up when the air's full of the drug's fumes. I guess a lot more of us are intellectually superior, than you think.
