A sawyer was injured when gas from a Stihl MS460 chainsaw fuel tank ignited after the sawyer opened the fuel cap to release excess pressure in the tank. The fuel ignited and “flashed” causing minor burns to the sawyer’s right arm, right side of neck, and right ear. The sawyer was evaluated by burn center physicians and released. July 1, 2013
