How do you deal with storing dangerous chemicals/pesticides/flammables at your office?

Explosions don't just happen unless there is something stored that is explosive. This LCO lost it all due to a fire.

Landscaping business burns with explosions (http://www.fortwayne.com/mld/fortwayne/news/local/15000714.htm) - A fire early Saturday destroyed a Fort Wayne landscaping business, firefighters said.

When they arrived on the scene shortly before 3 a.m. at Landscape Creations, 8218 Trier Road, firefighters found the building engulfed in flames, a Fort Wayne Fire Department report said.

Crews heard multiple explosions while battling the blaze, the report said.

The fire at the one-story, 50-foot-by-120-foot building took nearly a half-hour to bring under control, the report said.

Multiple pieces of landscaping equipment were destroyed in the fire and the building itself was a complete loss, the report said.

One firefighter was injured, but Assistant Fire Chief Franklin Smith said the injury was likely minor because no one reported an injury at the scene.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, the report said.
