Abstract: On April 9, 1996, Employee #1 had removed the gas tank from a van, and was using an oxygen-acetylene torch to remove the rear axle. He had set the gas tank down about 10 ft away, but a spark from the torch landed on it and set it on fire. Apparently, Employee #1 ran over to kick the gas tank away from the compressed air tanks when the gas tank exploded. He sustained burns.
