Used disposable lighter to light a cigar in garage. Finished the cigar and left the garage. A few minutes later went back in the garage and saw flames on the table where I left the lighter. The lighter had exploded and was burning. A hole was burned in the wood table, a nearby scrub brush was burned, and a battery charger was ruined because the fire melted the wires that were lying close to the lighter. I burned my finger putting the fire out.
