Summary Nr: 202449070Event: 09/05/2008Employee Is Burned In Propane Flash Fire
At about 9:27 a.m. on September 5, 2008, Employee #1 was assigned to remove the cap of a check valve on a propane tank to connect a valve with a hose for a "pump down." Instead, he removed the entire check valve, causing the rapid release of a large amount of liquid propane. The vapor cloud was ignited by a water heater over 25 ft away, and a flash fire occurred. Employee #1 was hospitalized at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for second-degree burns on his arms, chest, back and face.
