On Monday, my friend Firegeezer Bill Schumm was among the first in the fire service media world to tell us about a dangerous incident last Saturday at a drive-thru at a McDonalds in Coachella, California. It involved a pick-up truck with a couple of LPG tanks in the bed that vented during a 100-degree day and caught fire. A short time later the smaller of those tanks exploded, rocketing the larger one 75-feet away. Bill has a complete description and a video of the blast he found on YouTube.

But the video above has a much closer and more direct view of the blast and it shows the actions of law enforcement and/or private security before firefighters arrive on the scene.
