Wet Mountain Tribune - Protip: weed burner and propane leak don't mix
Wet Mountain Tribune - Page 1 - 2/25/2010: "Alice French, who has lived in the trailer for a number of years, had called her son, Brad, to help thaw a frozen water line. Apparently, Brad was using a weed burner, which is a device hooked to a small propane tank, to thaw the water line under the trailer. “The underside of the trailer caught fire,” said Livengood. “I suspect there was a propane leak under the trailer because Brad reported hearing a ‘whoosh’ immediately before the fire started.” Livengood also said Alice had mentioned smelling propane a few days before."
And that's a slice of life from Wet Mountain, Colorado.
