Indeed. Are you a chaplain or are you actually a firefighter?FrChris said:Yeah, no fooling...vehicle fires are a big deal. The fire department that I am currently serving with is spending all their time on structural firefighting, but the vehicle fires are more numerous and have the potential of explosions like we see ....and much, much worse.ironchapman said:So, a university transit bus caught fire and exploded on campus yesterday. No one hurt. Only casualty was my faith in the campus transit system.
A couple of videos (a little NSFW language--people are really surprised)
and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyXmVw_mvVo (about 1:30 will get you close to the explosions)
It was one of our newer natural gas buses. If it had been diesel, it could have really been a problem. Diesel would have been like a bomb going off.
Anyways, I saw the site of the fire. Ground scorched, trees were a little charred, asphalt was messed up in places, and a stop sign was melted. Pretty intense.
