Pelham barn destroyed
No injuries were reported when a fire destroyed a barn filled with equipment on Canboro Rd., Friday morning.
Pelham fire chief said Bob Lymburner estimated about $100,000 in damage was done after the 9 a.m. fire reduced the steel-clad building filled with tools and equipment to blackened wreckage.
"The building's a total loss," Lymburner said, adding the building was likely used to house horses at the 1009 Canboro Rd. property.
No animals or people, however, were inside the building when the fire occurred.
He said he was the first on the scene, and the building was fully engulfed in flame when he arrived.
There was some equipment within the building firefighters were concerned about, including propane tanks, and oxygen and acetylene welding tanks. The tanks, however, remained stable and did not contribute to the fire.
Lymburner said although the metal walls contained the fire, it also prevented firefighters from extinguishing the flames. And the building was too unstable to fight the fire from within the structure.

Is there a "lifetime" for tanks non-emptyoxygen/acetylene. I am trying to learn to weld with oxy-acetylene and this forum has been invaluable. I do not have a truck to transport tanks so I'll have them delivered (or rent / borrow a truck). Your local welding shop is responsible for testing their leased tanks.No, there is no shelf life on the gas tanks, unless you count the lease of their missed. I did a lot of reading but a topic I have not seen the long-term storage tanks. If you buy the tanks, then you are responsible for bringing the hydro-tested every 10 years.
