House fire involving an external gas water heater
A 45 kg LPG supply cylinder had been left disconnected. The tenant at the property opened the cylinder valve without noticing the escape of gas. When the tenant tried to use the hot water, the water heater adjacent to the venting cylinder ignited the gas.
The cylinder station was non-compliant, although not directly attributable to the incident. The installation has been upgraded and certified as being compliant.
