I'd like information on an incident that occurred in Fernley (near Reno), NV on Sept. 14, 2005. A truck driver stopped on I-80 near Reno and noticed that LNG was leaking from a valve on the truck. The LNG vapor subsequently ignited and the area was evacuated. I'd like copies of (or references to) any articles that have been written on this incident. I'm interested in questions such as the design of the truck, what caused the leak, whether other LNG trucks may be vulnerable to such an event, etc. But in general, any detailed information you can find about the incident would be helpful.

hlg111-ga, The actual incident report on the Fernley LNG fire is available at this link: http://h1.ripway.com/dsarokin/fernleylngincidentreport.pdf The report was part of the California PUC submission to FERC, as mentioned at this link: http://www.energy.ca.gov/lng/documents/long_beach/2006-02-01_CPUC_COMMENTS_CORRECTED.PDF and was available directly, by searching the FERC docket files here: http://elibrary.ferc.gov/idmws/search/fercgensearch.asp FERC Online By the way, I searched the general internet, government sites and newspaper files for any "post mortem" reports of the incident, but did not find anything along those lines. I believe the full incident report should meet your needs for details of the Fernley fire, but if there's anything more I can do for you, please let me know by posting a Request for Clarification, and I'm at your service. All the best, pafalafa-ga
