Had a house fire caused by one of my techs. My tech told me that the can of gas exploded and then shortly after the gas ignited. Has anyone heard of mapp gas can exploding during use. Is it possible the can of gas exploded during the fire? Has anyone had any experience with this situation? The can was blown out on the bottom and the top half was split don the seam. The fire investigator told me it looked like a can failure. Anyhow, what do you do with someone who just burnt down a house? Just looking for opinions. He has been working for me for 2 years. Luckily the house was vacant and no one hurt. Do I get rid of him completely, and make him loose everything he's got,(theres not too many companies hiring around here)? Do I just let him do estimates and remove him from service calls pending more investigation results? Do I allow him to continue working and believe it was strictly freak accident?
