'Top Gear' Premiere: Truck Full Of Fireworks Catches Fire (VIDEO)

Season 2 of "Top Gear" (Tue., 9 p.m. EST on History) premiered on Valentine's Day and host Rutledge Wood had an explosive time while driving a big rig full of fireworks.

Given that the truck also contained several burning barbecues, viewers should not, perhaps, have been surprised when it caught on fire.

As smoke billowed from the back of the truck, Rutledge asked incredulously, "I'm on fire?" and then pulled over to check the situation.

When he opened the door, all hell broke loose. It was like July The Fourth as the fireworks exploded out of the back of the truck. And then set the nearby cornfield on fire.

Armed only with teeny tiny fire extinguishers, the "Top Gear" gang weren't up to the task of putting out the blaze, so the local firefighters had to do it for them.

Watch more testosterone-fuelled mayhem on "Top Gear," Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on History. To see how Jeremy Clarkson and the British petrol-heads do "Top Gear" head over to BBC America (check listings).
