Officials In Yankton Put Out Unusual Fire
YANKTON, SD - Firefighters in Yankton were called to extinguish an unusual blaze that involved an apparent small animal and a smoke bomb.
A resident who noticed a large hole had been dug in his yard overnight dropped a smoke bomb down the hole Sunday afternoon to scare off the varmint. The result was flames shooting from the ground.
Officials believe the animal might have chewed or clawed its way through a gas line, and the smoke bomb ignited the fumes. Firefighters monitored the scene for nearly an hour until a gas company employee clamped off part of the line to extinguish the blaze.
The resident suffered minor burns.

Who knew Carl Spackler retired to South Dakota ?
Yankton is where the state mental hospital is, IIRC.
Did he get the gopher?
Last week in NYC had someone set off number of foggers to
get rid of roaches
Building exploded - 8 people hurt
I loved that movie almost as much as Animal House.
“Excuse me Sandy but if I kill all the golfers, they’ll lock me up and throw away the key”
Certainly safer, save for cat transmitted schizophrenia, than mixing fire and a gas line.
Howabout a fresca? hhmmm hmmmm
BTW. My kids dont’t get this movie at all. Losers.
I got to get into this dude’s pelt and crawl around for a few days. Who’s the gopher’s ally. His friends. The harmless squirrel and the friendly rabbit.
Afterwards he was heard saying, “I’m alright! Nobody worry ‘bout me!”
Better watch out. Eric Holder will get ya for stalking the critter because of species profiling.
If the gopher had chewed through a gas line somehow, it would as quickly asphyxiated. So I suspect the rocket scientist decided to use his own explosive gas.
Importantly, they sell propane-oxygen gopher explosive gas systems.

The dummy should have done it the way everybody tries to kill gophers....with sniper fire.
He was obviously not properly licensed to kill gophers by the United Nations.
