Natural Gas, Gas Grills And Propane Tanks

There are several causes of propane tank explosions and fires. Valves can be defective in their design or manufacture, and a loose valve can result in dangerous gas leaks. Natural gas and propane are actually heavier than air, and leaking gas and associated vapors can quickly accumulate and expand until they reach a source of ignition such as a spark, a pilot light, internal heating systems, open flames, even light switches and clothes dryers.

Gas grills can be especially hazardous due to poor design, defective ignition systems, lack of ventilation, and leaking valves or connections. You can be following the designed lighting mechanisms of a gas grill and still experience severe burns to your hands, arms, chest and face.
