A BMW dealership I was near burned to the ground when a mechanic doing some fuel tank work screwed up. My hazy understanding is that he removed the tank with ten gallons or so still in it, then dropped it, creating a local fuel-air bomb which was set off when he stepped on a trouble light. I don't believe anyone was seriously hurt but the garage and showroom were totaled.
