    The RV there looks like it could have made contact with those fuel pumps. Trying to leave. Wow. What a mess. Look Harold there's a fire. Oh my Maude lets get the heck out of here. This place is going to BLOW..... Harold, yes Maude. You took out those fuel pumps. What? No way.

    So I'm like "What The Hell" so I drive around the back of the building to be safe and I started running to the front side of the building. Before the cops and fire fighter's got there "I'm no body special, I ain't ####"... Got to the lady stepping of her RV and she is in disbelieve.. Her husband quickly disconnected from the RV and drove forward...
    And I'm like are you'll aright "I know there not but just trying to comfort them...
    She started telling me that there was a guy fueling across from them and was on his phone but the his fuel pump was spilling fuel all over the place.. she then carefully notified him and when he stepped off the truck all hell broke loose and one of his legs caught on fire but he still took off driving..
    Just glad no one got seriously injured that ,I know of..

    Static electricity discharge is a bit(h!
    There's warning signs everywhere that no-one pays attention to.
    Especially If there was a gasoline spill, and there's plenty of fumes to kick it off.
    The story is that a cup of gasoline, in vapor form, has the explosive power of a stick of dynamite.
    The longer between spill and ignition, the more explosive the effect, as opposed to just a burning liquid.
    Ask me how I know?
    Years ago I was burning a brush pile and wasn't quick enough to light it, and singed my arm hairs off in the blast.
