Freak accident kills Wayne County man

State police say Douglas Till, 56, apparently attempted to light a cigarette while using a nasal oxygen delivery apparatus in his car.  When the oxygen contacted the open flame, the resulting flare-up caused facial and upper respiratory burns, resulting in Till’s death.

Molten rubber caused a small fire on the car’s carpet but it burned out without causing major damage.
