Propane Leak

April 4th , 2006

Friday evening, March 17 (St Patrick's Day) units responded to a propane tank leaking at Okeeheelee Park at the BMX Track. The tank was leaking from a hole in the bottom that could not be safely patched so Special Operations 31 Crews along with Station 32 and Brush 34 performed a burn-off operation that took about two hours to complete. BMX participants waited outside the park during the procedure and were very happy to be let in for their first night competition with a new track.

Sorry, no hot dogs that night.
