A tank exploded at Capital Divers dive shop in Washington, USA, blasting debris for
several yards and damaging the store. Firefighters raced to the building to find damage and debris scattered 45.7 metres in all directions. Firefighters said the debris was large enough to cause serious injury to anyone who was hit, but the shop’s owner was the only one in the building and he escaped harm. Investigators are still looking into what caused the blast. Damage is estimated at between US$20,000-$40,000.
