(Search the Franzoli Electronics on YouTube for “‘Africa’ By Toto On Musical Tesla Coils.”  He’s got several other songs on there as well.)

As she was trying to light the fire, the fumes caused an explosion that hurled her backward, and her body slammed into another car.  But she got up, picked up all her arson supplies, and walked off.
