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."
Queues to buy fuel continue as stations run out across the region.
West Sussex County Council has issued a statement advising motorists how to cut petrol use as the panic buy continues.
Thames Valley Police urge all motorists to continue as normal with their fuel purchases.
