Gas explosion accidents are of many types, they may involve gasoline or kerosene or butane or LP gas. These accidents can become disastrous, even when a small volume of the flammable liquid or gas gets exposed to an ignition source. Gas explosion accident can be a result of malfunctioning products at home like water heaters, dryers, stoves, cooking range etc. Any defect in the heating and cooling system in the house can result in a dangerous gas explosion accident.
These accidents are very likely to occur in gas storage environments if the safety rules are not followed and hazardous areas do not have warning signs posted. A number of times, in instances where the gas is not properly odorized, a gas leakage can cause asphyxiation.
