One day we heard a really big boom .

The workers at a local Macco Auto Paint shop 8 blocks up the street were cleaning the paint booth fan blades and flue with lacquer thinner for some odd reason.. One of the workers lite up a cigarette.

It was his last smoke.

There was a little bit of fire to go with it..

It killed him instantly dead as a mackerel ...

The shop closed and never reopened..

Safety first, safety is no accident...

Had a fan been blowing it probably wouldn't have happened..
