Dipshiat.
I've done pyrotechnics at fairgrounds and fires fall under the same safety standards, as I've done fires for crowds, too.
You always have a fire marshall sign off before ignition.
You always have a fire marshall review your mitigation stations.

That is a Dipshiat

I'm guessing some used gas instead of diesel. Or it was sabotaged.

Dude did a pretty good "casual walking away from an explosion" walk, though he probably was just trying to keep the shiate in his underwear from rolling down his pant leg.

It looks like an explosive concentration of vapors from whatever accelerant the dipshiat decided to use.

That was my thought as well.  Gasoline fumes can make a big bang.

This right here.

Mix diesel and kerosene and soak a roll of TP in it. Doesn't boom but does burn.  Some jackass probably snuck gasoline in.

Yeah, I was gonna suggest someone sabotaged it with a thingy that goes 'boom'.  But your theory has credibility, and it could happen without any extra thingy added to the pile.

Yeah. When thieves siphon it out of your tank at 3 AM, I would think 'previously owned' or 'second hand' would be more appropriate.

PRO TIP: Don't use gasoline to start bonfires.
 
2022-10-06 1:55:21 PM  
The guy's non-reaction when the explosion occurs leads me to believe he knew it would do that when he tossed in the fire starter.   Gasoline doesn't explode like that in open air... only under compression.  If it were just gas on wood it would have been a big whoosh & fireball, not a farking heaving/lifting/tearing explosion... & law enforcement should ,now better than to use a fast burning fuel like gasoline.

I presume a whole can of gas under pressure, or another explosive chemical was present like that explosive stuff gun nuts use on the rifle range.& I'm certain they knew it was there & wanted a big boom & since they're obviously stupid AF, they had no actual idea how much to use or what to reasonably expect.

Poor decision making all around from those employed to promote & provide safety for the public, Why not just use a slow burning lighter fluid?--no big whoosh or explosion, no matter how much you use & no one loses an eye or career in the process.

From what I can find, the last rainfall they had was on September 12. Some burnable stuff around there:

They could have combined two events into one- just let the fire department demonstrate deep frying a frozen turkey adjacent to the wood pile. 'Tis the season.

A few years back one of my brothers in law was starting a bonfire in his yard (big yard). The pile for the fire was all more-or-less green tree branches from a storm that had passed through the night before. He decided to use a little "scout juice" to get things going and doused the pile with gasoline, then fumbled around for several minutes trying to find matches. He eventually tossed a match into the pile and it exploded with a WHUMP that I felt hit my chest from 15 yards away. He was standing right next to it and his ears had to have been ringing the rest of the night.

/that was a good bonfire.

Looks like a vapor explosion. If someone put something in there, I'd guess a couple gallons of gas a little while ahead of time so it was mostly fumes by the time the flare hit.

I've seen broken windows on a house because someone started a bonfire with about 8oz of petroleum.  They poured it in and let it sit for a little bit (because they were farking looking for something to light it with).  The pile was *just* right and there was no wind.  I think the pit was ~8 feet in diameter and the flame went at least two feet out beyond that.  Amazingly it didn't blow the contents of the pit everywhere.

I'd like a follow up on this story.
That was a heck of an explosion and happened very quickly after he tossed the flare.

Andy Andy: Looks like a vapor explosion. If someone put something in there, I'd guess a couple gallons of gas a little while ahead of time so it was mostly fumes by the time the flare hit.


I think it is simpler than that. They dug out a giant crater and filled it with the debris and wood. Then they dumped a whole bunch of gasoline on it. All of those gasoline fumes just pooled in the crater and went nowhere. The second he tossed the flare into the crater the mixture of fuel fumes and air detonated. They just used too much gas and let the vapors pool.

You don't need much accelerant to ensure a quality bonfire start. A quart should be adequate for that huge pile. When I feel like getting a backyard fire going ASAP I just use a shot-glass of diesel or gasoline.

Having frequently created boom-like fires like this I can say you don't really need "just right" conditions. You just need gasoline, a calm day, and to wait a little bit before lighting it. The bonfire in TFA improves on things a bit by creating a berm around the base which helps trap the heavier-than-air vapors from spreading out.

At first, I didn't understand how anybody could do what this guy did.Now, after learning more about him, I am beginning to get it. He's a gigantic asshole. Maybe he's not right in the head, but he loves not being right in the head.He should never see the light of day again.I hope I'm not just getting old and mean, but boy. This guy seems to set a new standard.
