  1. What you are seeing is called "BLEVE" or Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion. Learned about it in fireschool, mainly because if you don't have enough water to cool the tank or tanks to avoid the point where the metal will fatigue and explode, then just stand back and watch it burn. Some of the larger tanks that hold propane are known to launch the end pieces well over 5-10 miles away.
