    That looks a lot bigger than a barrel. More like a fuel tank!

    I have seen 100 pound liquid propane tanks take off like missiles in a rural farmhouse fire when heat raises the pressure high enough to blow the bottom out. I have also seen them explode while in flight.

    Dad was a volunteer fireman years ago. The local gasoline/oil/diesel distributor called them up there and said they had a gasoline tank leaking. They said that they were emptying it and would like the fire department to stand-by while they welded the leak. Dad about had a cow. He told them it would explode high order from the fumes left in the tank. So they filled the tank completely, then welded it. it burned a small flame as they were welding and when it stopped, they knew the tank had ben repaired.
