All you need is a source of fuel and ignition…
Methane gas released by dairy cows has caused an explosion in a cow shed in Germany, police said.
Thanks to the belches and flatulence of the 90 dairy cows in the shed, high levels of the gas had built up.
Then “a static electric charge caused the gas to explode with flashes of flames” the force said in a statement quoted by Reuters news agency.
Cows give off methane.
The roof was damaged and at least one of the cows were injured from the blast. Perhaps not so odd when they can emit up to 500 litres of methane a day.
We covered another story about odd explosions back in November about exploding tea towels.
