Local Gas dealer was loading a (supposedly) empty cylinder into the pickup , the valve broke and gas ignited.. man panicked and ran away, (at that point the fire was limited and one man with a wet blanket could easily cover the cylinder and put off the fire.. apparently, that was not the case!
First Video: Ground zero before any explosion occur.. Firemen looked pretty shocked & under-equipped for a potentially hazardous situation they didnt even put a safety perimeter for bystanders!
Second Video: Full length.. Only one fire engine arrived with a water hose smaller than the one i used at my backyard! Fireman @ 2:40 finds out its too short to reach fire and quits!
it took 10 minutes for support to arrive, although a MAJOR fire station was less than a mile away.
