    Default Oxygen Tank explosion

    Can anyone help me find the pictures of the oxygen tank that exploded in the compartment of there engine, I cant remember where it was from. I would like the picture to show my grandfather what happens to oxygen tanks when around sparks. We have been catching him smoking in his place with his oxygen on, wonder he hasn't cought the place on fire, but hopefully if I can find these pictures it will change his mind about smoking while on oxygen. Thanks

    First of all, try a spelling and grammar check before you post.....

    And are you talking about an SCBA tank that exploded or the oxygen tank that caught on fire in the bag in the compartment????

    Either way, they were both discussed in these forums........

    I am talking about the oxygen tank in the compartment, sorry about spell check, I got in a hurry. I know it was discussed but I looked around the forums and coould not find it, and was figuring someone had the link or something.

    I found the link. My guessing was good I typed in penlight, because I remembered something about a penlight.

    I don't know the location nor do I have the pics but I remember a first aid bag that melted or burned not that long ago. There was a thread regarding on here just a month ago I believe. Mostly you should be able to find ambulances that had explosions. I have a powerpoint presentation on SCBAs that I included some pictures of a house exploding with firefighters in it from some oxygen tanks.

    Don't expect many pictures of tanks left over after the explosion, usually nothing left.

    I may have some pics of a couple members of the "little green buddy brigade" who have caught their O2 tubing on fire. One guy had a neat plastic moustache. If I can blur 'em (and find 'em) I'll post or send them to you.
