India TV News has video of firefighters from an Indian fire brigade jumping back (running back) quickly when a gas cylinder (reportedly). Starting at about the 0:10 mark shows the firefighters preparing to put water on the fire prior to the explosion at about 0:16. Yes — we know they are not in full PPE and SCBA, which we preach, but … hopefully everyone understands not every part of the World “responds” quite the same way. Either way, they are certainly three lucky firefighters to have escaped the situation without serious injury or worse.
Just last month, three people were killed and eight injured when a LPG cylinder exploded at a home in India.
