Mobile phone as a source of ignition

I have been aware of several stories over the years about mobile (cell) phones starting fires at petrol stations. However, I have never seen any real evidence of them being true.

The website Snopes.com, which looks at rumours and urbane legends has studied it, and concludes there is no evidence to support any of the stories.

A useful reference for the next time the story is circulated.
