Several tanks exploded at a West Phoenix welding business on Thanksgiving Day. Phoenix Fire Captain Mark Vanacore. “On Thanksgiving, just before noon, we got a report of numerous explosions in the area of 40th Avenue and Lincoln.
We arrived on scene and found a fire and numerous explosions happening on our arrival at a welding supply business.” “We were able to quickly control the explosions and contain the original explosions to an outside containment area where these flammable tanks were stored.” Nobody was hurt and the cause of the fire is under investigation. Captain Vanacore says the situation could have been much worse. ” It was a potentially very extremely dangerous situation with the amount of volatile gases contained in all the tanks that were in that welding supply storage area.”
