    I suspect that one of the cylinders was filled way beyond the 80% max, and in the heat of the day started outgassing on the pressure relief valve, then some dummy with a cigarette set the gas on fire.

    I was on a job site where somebody brought the boom of a manlift down on the top of an acetylene cylinder. It took a few hours for that to completely gas out. Site evacuation. That was an interesting day.

    I love the "firefighter" with his pan of water so expertly splashed on the side of the truck bed.

    For topical application, only. Not to be taken internally or used in com-
    bination with other drugs or alcohol, except as directed by your shaman.
    Do not operate heavy equipment, unless you actually know how to.
