Her husband rushed in, tried to put out the flames and his clothes too caught fire. The husband is still in hospital, in the burns ward, still unaware that his wife was declared dead on arrival. Let us understand: - All insect killer sprays such as "Hit", "Mortein", "Heaven", "Raid", etc. have highly volatile and inflammable solvents.

The atomized spray particles spread very rapidly and one spark is enough to ignite this explosive mixture with oxygen present in air.

Please educate your family & friends about this and spread the word around.
