A man in Queensland has been arrested in the UK after attempting to burn the sun incense in a solar powered heater.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told police he had been looking to burn sun-emitting candles with the help of an electric heater and was worried about the safety of the incense.
But police said the man would not have been able to use a solar heater to burn candles.
Police say the man, aged in his 40s, had the heater plugged in and was able to heat up the candle to about 200C before he was arrested.
Police said they were concerned the man could have caused an accident.
“The temperature of the heater was too high and if he had not been able, or the heater were to get too hot the candle could have burned,” police said in a statement.
Police charged the man with attempting to do an act dangerous to health.
