Propane Fires and Explosions

Representing Individuals and Families Injured in Propane Explosions

While natural gas is more commonly used for heating homes and offices, propane can also be used in residences and commercial buildings for a variety of things — including running stovetops and oven ranges, clothes dryers, barbecue grills, water heaters, furnaces, fireplaces, spa heaters and patio heaters. Even though it is not as widely used as natural gas, propane tends to lead to more severe injuries and damage in the event of a propane explosion or fire.

Accidents Caused by Propane Leaks

While propane heaters and appliances are practical for everyday use in certain areas, they are not without dangers. Accidents involving propane can occur because of:

  • Defective products, like leaking portable propane heaters, barbecue grills and propane furnaces
  • Poorly maintained equipment used to store or transmit propane, like outside storage tanks and propane gas lines
  • Gas leaks that go undetected because propane is not "odorized"

When propane accidents occur, they usually result in destruction of property, severe burn injuries or even death.
