Explosion at Marathon Sign & Light Injures 2

A March 23 fuel tank explosion at Marathon Electric Sign & Light in the Florida Keys severely injured two employees who were airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.

Fire and rescue crews arrived at the scene, located at Aviation Boulevard and 107th Street, at 10:36 a.m. to find the two injured men on the ground, bleeding. One was holding his arm, the other had sustained serious facial injuries.

Other employees told local media that the blast, which blew the fuel tank through the roof of a carport, made a deafening sound.

Fuel tank explosions can involve gas leaks, and individual parts can be involved. There are a number of parts that may require inspection, including valves, vapor control mechanisms, fuel petcocks, vapor sensors, manifold, drain plug, tank (integrity of materials and design), and the withdrawal assembly. It is important to hire engineers to assist with the inspection of the fuel tank (what is left of it). These experts provide authoritative testimony that can help win a lawsuit.
