Glass or Acrylic?

I am going to invest in either an 80 gal glass tank, or a 75 gal Acrylic tank soon. I don't know much about acrylic tanks, but my LFS insists that acrylic tanks are more durable. The employee at my LFS told me that they no longer sell the larger size glass tanks, as one of their former customers bought one that leaked and started a fire in the cumtomers home. The customer sued the LFS for damages. Do larger glass tanks have a tendancy to leak? This is a big investment for me, considering the budget I have to work with, so I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the issue.

Thanks everyone.
