An explosion can begin with a spark—the ashes from a cigarette or the light of a candle. Did you know that mobile home fires can cause injury to at least 1, 000 people annually, and at least 500 deaths?
Mobile homes are very compact units, making it much easier for one tiny spark to wreak havoc.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE?
Many mobile homes run propane tanks to produce fuel for stoves. Accidents can happen when these tanks rupture or leak, because propane is highly flammable.
If a flame comes into contact with propane vapors that can cause a flash of fire or worse yet, an explosion. Explosions from propane tank explosions can cause severe injuries—burns, in particular.
These are the degrees of burn injuries:
- First degree: the outer layer of skin is damaged
- Second-degree: the outer layer and layer under sustains damage
- Third-degree: burns penetrate all of the skin layers and even damages tissue
