    ***Some cursing on video***
    While shooting some ENG/stock footage of a tank battery fire near Lamesa, TX (in West Texas) that was ignited by lightning, an explosion took place that sent a foot and half long, 4" diameter pipe valve from 200 yards away arcing directly into the front of my storm chase vehicle causing extensive damage.
    This is closer than you EVER want to be to an explosion!
    Firefighters from Lamesa and Andrews, TX fought to keep the fire down and the tanks cooled off for an hour before it finally exploded. Miraculously, all managed to escape without injury!
    Video aired the following day on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, TWC
