Close Call: Arizona Firefighters Narrowly Avoid Exploding Pressure Cooker

Firefighters cleaning up the remains of a blaze narrowly avoided being struck by an exploding pressure cooker in Tucson, Arizona.

Video shared by the Tucson Fire Department shows the near-miss.

“After a mobile home fire last week, crews were performing mop up when an empty pressure cooker in a cabinet exploded, projecting debris all over the fire scene,” the fire department wrote on Facebook. “Just another reason why our firefighters wear protective gear at all times on the fireground.” Credit: Tucson Fire Department via Storyful
