  2. Can’t wait for the CSB video on this.

  3. I live pretty close to Elk Grove and I remember reading about this online and seeing the local news coverage on it. Pretty wild to see it pop up again here on Reddit!

  4. I spend alot of time in these ammonia rooms for my job. I’m constantly considering how close I am to the door or the wall respirator incase of a leak

  5. Quick question, whatโ€™s ammonia used for in the food processing industry?

  6. Run away!

  7. Wow, that was fast. Just over a minute to fill the room, at which point I assume everyone was already evacuating, and an explosion 10 minutes later.

  8. That’s a fire engine room.

  9. “Be warned, for if you light a single match, even if only to light your way… You may ignite an INFERNO.

  10. Is this a serious hazard for anyone in the room? I’m not too well versed in chemistry, what’s going on here and how severe is it?

  11. What’s the point of having a muster point right beside the entrance if you’re going to get slapped by debris as the building implodes?

  12. Used to work in a freezer and always had this on the back of my mind. Glad I got the fuck outa there

  13. i just started working in a facility just like this ๐Ÿ™

    Gyro and spanakopita prices are going to jump up.

  15. How irresponsible. When replacing anything in ammonia tank systems there are SOP that prevent leaks. These idiots failed terribly. They become complacent.
