Well somtimes poeple with good education doesn`t wanna work at these gas station. That left uneducated people like him. The driver was usually does not check the petrol level. But she should not have hold a lighter in his pocket in the first place if he`s working in a gas station.

This guy did not check the fuel tanker with a lighter.

This must have been the guy`s first day on the job, he didn`t ground the truck first. You need to ground the truck or else any kind of electrostatic discharge will ignite any fumes. He obviously didn`t do that. Those balloons certainly don`t help either.

How do these people dress themselves? How is someone that god damn stupid? It just boggles my drating mind. Don`t they have training videos (as if you needed someone to tell you NOT to put fire near flammable poo)

The cause of the blast was not immediately clear, but police said they have not ruled out foul play, given the proximity to the presidential compound, just a kilometer (0.6 miles) away.

The palace was not affected by the fire, which was quickly brought under control.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is out of the country, attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Here`s a cut and paste of the article...
MANILA, Philippines -- One person was killed and several others were injured when a truck loading diesel fuel exploded near Malacañang, the Philippine presidential palace, late Wednesday, police said.

The truck was loading fuel at a Shell Oil depot in the Nagtahan district when it exploded, killing the truck driver and setting fire to 13 vehicles parked nearby, police said.

But a report by dzMM radio said the explosion killed the driver of a nearby Toyota Altis, identified as Melencio Aquino, and severely injured his wife.

Witnesses said they had seen fuel leaking from the truck before it exploded along Lacson Avenue, the radio report said.

Police are looking for the truck driver who fled before the accident happened, the report added.

what really gets me is that I am damned sure there`s this huge sign saying "No smoking within 50 feet" (here in our country, there is...)

Then what, in God`s name, was that..?? What more being atop the tanker? Top of the world buddy, top of the world.
