Defective Products Comments Off on Mission Viejo Propane Tank Explosion Injures Three
A faulty backyard barbeque at a residence in the 26700 block of Baronet in Mission Viejo caused an explosion badly injuring three Mission Viejo residents, according to a recent article in The Orange County Register.
Ken Kelly, 50, was barbequing in his backyard with his family close-by when the propane tank connected to the grill exploded. The powerful blast shook neighborhood houses, set off car alarms and destroyed the Kelly familyâ€™s backyard. The five-gallon propane tank had reportedly leaked and ignited causing second-degree burns to Ken, burning his daughter Meghan Kelly, 11, and bruising his 78-year old father. The injured are now said to be recovering.
