Oh say can you see the flaming Propane cylinder around 1:38 to 1:40 into the vid flying screen left and goes boom. Dallas I believe 2007 <img src=' />
About 7 minutes long

Here is a Fire dept training vid looks to be from England.
a quickie

Of course it was probably only an acetylene cylinder.
And on the page there are the usual assortment of Darwin award tryouts from the knuckleheads at the local tire shop playing with it inside the bay with a car near, To bored US solders in Iraq , figuring out a new way to remove eyebrows.

About 3:30 in , you can see a flying cylinder shoot out to the right. I noticed cars passing by in the foreground. I'm surprised they didn't shut the highway down. Thanks for the post.

About 15 years ago this same kind of thing happened in a town near where I worked. A company that supplies industrial gases had something go wrong. The fire, explosions and launched projectiles put on a show for several hours. The fire department couldn't get anywhere near it but did clear everyone out of the neighborhood until the last missile returned to earth. My shop is about 50 feet behind the house and at most I have two Oxy-Acet sets(small bottles) and one bottle of inert mix for the MIG in the shop. Even the inert bottles will launch if the valve gets broken off. I think about that every time I enter the shop.

Makes you wonder just what would it take for some folk to interrupt their car journey.
