Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service has reminded people not to store fuel in their homes, after a woman in Yorkshire was badly burned in an explosion.
The woman accidentally set fire to herself after trying to decant petrol from one container to another using a jug in her kitchen.
The petrol vapours were ignited by the gas cooker.
Area Manager John Popowicz said: “Given that there is no industrial action affecting fuel supplies as yet, our advice would be to not store fuel at home, as it is a significant fire risk.
"If you do need to have flammable materials on your premises, you should never bring them into the domestic part of the home."

The scene in Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire where people are panic buying fuel.
Here's a selection of views from ITV Meridian's Facebook site. There are a lot of people out there queuing for petrol and diesel. But, it seems, all the panic buying is making things worse:
Karlene Heath These motorists need to stop and use their common sense. They are causing the very shortage they are trying to avoid being affected by. If you don't have to fill up right now -DON'T!
Jayne Norman My car is empty, I need fuel to get to a family funeral in the north of England but every place round me is either closed or rationing. I do not expect to sit in the petrol station for an hour with 4 young children getting hotter and hotter in the car.
Panic buying has meant that this petrol station in Thame in Oxfordshire has run out of fuel.
There's heavy traffic on the B3080 Lode Hill in Sailisbury.
Further delays on the A2030 Goldsmith Avenue, westbound, and the A2047 Kingston Road, northbound, in Portsmouth.
And queueing traffic on the A353 King Street and A354 Dorchester Road in Weymouth, all caused by queues at petrol stations.
There's no diesel fuel now available at Fleet Services, northbound on the M3. Petrol is still available, reports say.
