At 8:00 p.m. on December 18, 2021, Employee #1 and Employee #2 were changing the right rear trailer tires on a Dragon Water tanker trailer (VIN #: 1URST42238206 8551) attached to Peterbilt truck (VIN#: 1XP-5D68X-X-TD373380). Employee #1, a w ater haul driver, and Employee #2, the shop supervisor, utilized flammable liqui ds, which were sprayed into the tire and ignited to seat the bead of the tire on to the single piece rim wheel.
