Flash Fire of the Face

OMG, did you know that your face can catch fire during routine surgery? Seriously , a full on face flash fire. Seems there are between 550 and 650 surgical flash fires a year. The fires are usually caused by tools like lasers giving off a spark and then setting off a chain reaction thanks in part to flammable liquids and oxygen used in  surgery.

Want sauce with that?
