Pourable fuel gels are becoming a problem in Illinois and the attorney general is calling for a ban on the products. Lisa Madigan says the problem is that a fireball erupts when people try to add gel to the pot and that has had horrible consequences. She says peoples clothing and skin are often burned and the "stop, drop, and roll" technique doesn't work to put the fire out. Madigan says at least 57 people across the nation have been injured by the gels.
