Just a coupleof days ago here in Australia, a man was burnt by gas from a leaking cylinder in the back of his car.
He pushed his wife out even before the car had come to a stop and barely moments after first smelling it. He himself brought the vehicle to a halt even as flames licked around scorching both arms (2nd degree I think). Once he was out, he remained to retrieve the motorcycles on the trailer they'd been towing.

I believe there was two bottles in the back and the car was blackened shell afterwards, but my memory of the news report is a little hazy.
