Witness Everett Tyrrell said he saw two or three people standing over the smouldering pantless man with a fire extinguisher at the ready.
“...I guess his pants...caught on fire,” Tyrrell said.
A COSTCO manager said the man pulled his pants off pronto and avoided being badly burned. But his LG phone left a scorch mark on the floor, nonetheless.
The man got a new pair of pants, a tube of panthenol and an expedited check-out. Betcha he's happy the phone wasn't in his front pocket.
