A Chonburi man determined to have the final word in a fight with his wife he set his own truck on fire.

No one was hurt in the fiery spat, but clearly the unnamed hothead lost the battle of wits with his missus when firefighters had to spend 30 minutes putting out the flames that destroyed his ride parked in front his mother-in-law’s house in Panthong District.

The pyromaniac wouldn’t answer the burning question on everyone’s lips – what started the fight – but he decided he’d finish the quarrel by pouring gasoline over the truck’s seats.

Not sticking around for the pyrotechnics, the human torch’s unnamed wife took off on a motorbike for mom’s with her friend riding pillion.

Hubby followed in very hot pursuit and, once he arrived, lit a cigarette, igniting the gasoline surrounding him. He leaped out of the truck before being barbecued, but the pickup was a goner.
