Do auto mechanics ever blow themselves up?

Got a new exhaust put on my Land Rover yesterday. I'm watching the guys work under mine and other cars, using blow torches and welding equipment, back by where the fuel tanks are.

All I could think of was "just one small leak of fumes and Ka-Fucking-Bm!

I've never been sent to such a call. Does anything like that ever happen?
