Careful with that gas now!

This in the Walmart lot in Kelowna BC. It could have some serious implications for camping at Walmart lots.

Looks like the lone occupant was in the only safe place , in that one , on the bed, maybe.
Propane leak , non functioning detector, that's all it would take .
Parking lot lights , still on when pictures were taken, so I'm thinking explosion was between 4 and 5 AM, by 7:30 that lot is filling up, with staff and shoppers , so things could have been way worse.
Fire Hall only three blocks away, dealership where I worked only two, passed the lot every working day.

Couple of rolls of Gorilla Tape should do it.
