In 2013, two explosions in Maine, both of which leveled houses and could be felt miles away, put the public spotlight on the destructive potential of propane (LP gas).
While propane and natural gas are generally safe fuels for home and commercial heating and other applications, leaks and explosions have been on the rise in Maine and around the nation as the popularity of these fuels increases.
Gas and propane explosions can be the result of improper venting, defective gas connectors and control valves, leaking pipes, hoses and tanks, faulty installation, negligent maintenance, and other causes. Faulty propane tanks, gas meters, and barbecue grills are also common sources of explosions.
