Austin Dawkins, 37, is now facing criminal charges after surveillance video taken at a Clarkesville gas station on Oct. 16 appears to show him dangerously placing a lighter between his truck’s gas tank and his wife. Within split seconds fire officials say gasoline vapor ignited around his hand like a fire ball. As seen on video his apparent attempt to withdraw the nozzle instead amplifies the flames in the direction of his 30-year-old wife, Jessica Dawkins.

The 30-year-old woman suffered second- and third-degree burns to her legs, arms, back and head. Her husband suffered minor burns to his hands.
