Once they want you to evacuate, I would treat it like I won’t have a house when I come back. Where I live we have been about a mile outside of evac more than once. Im soo done with these fires.
Far greater potential for harm from any high pressure gas container than from cooking off ammo.
And no one has LP gas tanks for their BBQ? right?
Reminds me, at the beginning of the year I had 20 oxygen tanks at various sizes and stages of discharge in the house for someone who needed to use them when traveling or the in-home concentrator failed…
LoL flammable liquids anyone? … perfume library? 1/2 or 5/8th’s or larger natural gas lines to kitchen, fireplace?
off topic? not on our lives
Been there, done that. Couple hundred rounds of .22LR in a dresser by the back door. Fortunately the fire didn’t get hot enough in that area to cook it. Lost the rest of the house for all practical purposes.
Not an ideal scenario… I hope that never happens. But, and this is a true story, my uncle’s neighbor’s car caught fire & he had a handgun with extra magazines in the car at the time. He said it was crazy. (Pew pew pew for a few seconds)
Propane tanks come with a high pressure blow off valve to keep them from exploding due to over pressure.
Solid point though, they definitely do pose a risk to FF’s.
