    Multiple Bug Foggers + Pilot Light = KaBoom!

    (March 12, 2005) -- A resident of an apartment building in the 1400 block of Cherry Ave. decided to use an anti-bug fogger on Friday, March 11.

    Actually, multiple anti-bug foggers.

    Eighteen of them. [!]

    LBFD responded to calls of an explosion at about 11:40 p.m. on March 11.

    Public Information Officer Paul Rodriguez says LBFD believes the pilot light was left on.

    PIO Rodriguez says the explosion was so powerful that part of the building in the area of the affected apartment unit appeared to have sustained some structural damage...and was red tagged.

    Some areas showed bulges and separations.

    Another adjacent apartment unit was also red tagged (meaning two families are now displaced).

    PIO Rodriguez says the lesson is: Read the Instructions. "The product instructions are explicit about how to use foggers safely. That includes how many can foggers safely be used within a certain area...and how to use them. That includes taking care to turn off the pilot light and other possible ignition sources," PIO Rodriguez said.
