    Storing the lawn mower in the garage is just as safe as parking your car in it. The likely hood of it catching on fire is rather slim but there is a chance. You can take some precautions before parking it. The first and most important is to keep the grass clippings from building up on the mower deck and around the muffler. If you notice it is getting grass build up, blow the grass off with a leaf blower or compressed air. Next, make sure you are not parking the mower against any flammable material. The area around the muffler can be hot. If the area you are storing the mower in has flammable items that cannot be moved that is ok. Just let it cool outside first. If you do ever see the lawn mower leaking gas put it outside and have it serviced.
