  • Building Fire and Explosion in Ogden, UT (2 threads merged)

    A building caught fire and then things started to explode. The report says that there were natural gas tanks inside the building. It doesn't specifically mention CNG tanks. Anybody have any additional information about this incident? Good news was that nobody was hurt.

      Fire at Innovative Transportation Shop

      [B]Compressed natural gas from canisters played role in business fire

      OGDEN — Compressed natural gas that escaped from canisters likely played a significant role in fueling a fire and explosions that demolished a business on Monday, according to city fire officials.

      The blaze and blasts that destroyed a 1,500- square-foot storage building at 105 West 7th St. owned by Innovative Transportation did not cause any injuries but could have been deadly, said City Fire Marshal Brandon Thueson.

      “We feel very fortunate that it didn’t kill some of our firefighters or injure people in the neighborhood,” he said.

      Innovative Transportation sells compressed natural gas conversion kits for motor vehicles, said Thueson. Although the ignition source has not been pinpointed, it’s possible gas leaking from CNG canisters helped start the blaze, he added.

      The fire destroyed three vans, two trucks, an airport shuttle and a forklift.

      Damages to the building and its contents are estimated around $170,000, said Thueson.

      The Ogden and North View fire departments responded to the blaze with 28 personnel, who manned two fire engines, three ladder trucks, two ambulances, a rescue truck and a brush truck.

      It took about an hour to knock down the fire. Dozens of spectators watched firefighters battle the blaze, which spewed thick black smoke visible for miles.

          Why would anybody in their right mind, store hundreds of CNG tanks with NG still in them? That's just as bad as storing hundreds of gasoline cans with various amounts of gasoline in each one.

            Just wait, this is only the tip of someone's iceberg. I'm personally waiting for the dust to settle before giving you all the back (scary) story.
            Let's just say, I've been waiting for this to happen...
