    Default My friend dropped a lit cigarette in the backseat of the car

    Hi,

    Yesterday, my friend dropped a lit cigarette while he was smoking in the backseat. I didn't put much though into it at that time. But, later, I realized, that it could have easily started a fire, by igniting the car carpets.

    Anyways, I couldn't find the cigarette butt, It probably went beneath, the passenger seat, I couldn't reach there. The Cigarette was half smoked, do you know how long will the cigarette take to die out completely, if it is not being smoked? This happened, yesterday, so is it safe to assume, that the cigarette is no longer burning?

    I don't smoke, myself, So, I don't know about this stuff.

    cigs have a papers layer, and tabaco doesn't burn until air flows through it, and given the tight spaces in seats the paper might have been torn putting the cig out in a min, or if your unlucky it will burn in a perfect state for 3-4 mins,
    but your alive, your cars fine, and so is your friend . so why bother?

    Other than the stench of stale tobacco and ash, you have nothing to worry about now. Car upholstery has fire retardants, and the cigarette would have lasted a few minutes at most. If you are still worried, removing the back seat cushion to clean underneath would not be too hard.

    Just like other said nothing to worry about,all the good quality cigarettes are made of fire safe paper which extinguishes the flame if not smoked for minute or two.

    Your car and your rules.
    If you don't smoke, then why let others smoke.
    A friend should understand that.
