`An 82-year-old man from Glen Burnie, Md., is being treated for burns he received while trying to siphon gas from his car with a vacuum cleaner, while the engine was running. [..]

Anne Arundel County fire officials said the man had locked his keys in his car with the engine running Wednesday night and went to bed.
