VEHICLE FIRE? WATCH THIS BUS FIRE:


Below is a video link that every Firefighter really needs to see...it is a fire in a CNG - powered bus, which was occupied and in service at the time. The driver and passengers discovered the fire and bailed. Good decision. This happened a few weeks ago in Wassenaar, the Netherlands. The CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) buses have their tanks on the roof.

Ahhhh,, for the good old days when you could be electrocuted in the bus/trolley.

(Very rare).---(Not meant as the "cooking term" of the person, but the frequency of occurrence)

Thermal link melted out or safety valve lifted, relieving pressure. Otherwise it would have been a more impressive video - BLEVE.

An Earl Schieb Shop should be able to take care of that.

Here is one of his commercials from 1986.

The road looks power washed.
The truck and crane look new.
The firefighters turnouts don't have a spec of dirt.

There is a path from the Low Countries to Switzerland, where dirt must not exist. Just not right.

Looks like it went as designed. It didnt explode, it failed at a point so the gas was let out as a jet. The fire before the tanks went was from the plastics it looks like.

I guess the vents are on the ends of the cylinders for a reason, but it sure looks like having them pointed UP would be a lot safer.

Yep. We give them a hard time sometimes, but our European brothers sure do live nicely in many ways.

The Netherlands are just kinda like that, almost everywhere. Everything is new and shiny.

Even the street people in Amsterdam are clean.

I had work done on a van in Germany and the mechanic was wearing a white lab coat. I had to have a locksmith fix the door lock in Liechtenstein and the guy was wearing a spotless light grey shirt and slacks. Everything looks great but after a while it has a sort of Orwellian feel.

I think they should have gotten him on truth in advertising. Biggest car painter. I bet he's 140 soaking wet.

The passengers and driver were warned by smoke and flames at the rear of the bus. They could leave the bus safely. The flames were soon flames; the fire developed rapidly. Fire-fighting efforts of the driver and passengers were not allowed benefits; upon arrival of the first fire vehicles was already uitslaand the fire.


Because these buses run on natural gas, there are a number of large cylinders on the roof. These are equipped with overpressure valves, which blow off once the pressure too high. In this case, that happened too. The gushing gas was ignited, causing enormous stitch flames arose. When the gas cylinders were empty, the danger was averted and the Fire Department could extinguish the bus permanently.


The bus is on a lowloader drained.There ya go.

1:07 in the first vid, seems to me that's about the time you back up all the gawking civilians and try to make sure the trees don't catch fire. Sure doesn't seem like there's a lot you can do to put out the bus fire until it runs out of propane at that point.

I think his out was, he could paint a car for $99....didn't mean it was going to be a good job. He is no longer in business. I think there are some shops still around, but they are on their own.

You are being over generous with him weighing 140 soaking wet. I think that number includes caring his 4 layers of clothes too.
