Back in my youth, I delivered oxygen to patients at home. I drove a route for over a year and regularly saw people lighting up while actively using their oxygen and none of them ever had a problem. Oxygen doesn't "blow up" - it just makes existing fires burn a lot faster. I always laughed when the smokers complained their cigarettes only lasted half as long anymore.

I suspect the cigarette burned with an open flame instead of an ember and the smoker panicked and dropped it. Things just got worse from there.

Disregarding the fact that you can catch on fire, who the hell smokes in a car with someone who needs oxygen? Can't you just wait until you get out of the car. Just seems like common sense seeing as that person already has breathing problem.
