Aerosol Can Explodes, Burns at Lambert

Filed in MiscellaneousTags: Missouri, Saint Louis

Another reason I'm glad I didn't check any bags for my Thanksgiving visit to Mom and Dad:

An aerosol can inside a piece of luggage exploded in flames Saturday night on a luggage carousel at Lambert Airport.

An airport police officer grabbed a fire extinguisher and put out the small fire on Carousel M1 about 8:15 p.m. No one was injured.

Airport spokeswoman Sandy Singer said the bag was "coming onto the carousel and seemed to be smoking and caught fire."

Here's hoping my flight today is much less eventful.
