Propane Tank Explosions

Propane is usually stored and transported in large tanks. Many Americans use propane in cylindrical tanks to heat their grills or fuel heaters. Other individuals have large propane tanks outside of their homes to power many of their home appliances.

Unfortunately, negligently handled or constructed propane tanks may be prone to devastating accidents.

Explosion Causes

Propane tanks will never spontaneously combust. In fact, most tanks are constructed so that even outside factors will not affect the contents inside of the tanks. Usually, an explosion results from a fault or from negligence, which may include:

Any of these errors may cause a tank to leak. When the gas comes into contact with a spark, it will ignite. In some cases, the flame may follow the gas into the tank, which is when an explosion occurs. This is a very dangerous event that may lead to serious injury or even death for individuals who fall within the blast radius.
