The following is from a member of a different RC club, not in San Diego:
“I am fortunate to have a 20 by 30 foot workshop on the second floor of a barn. It is a great place to work and build. I was refinishing a piece of furniture using Watco Danish Oil last Wednesday evening. It was quite hot and my air conditioner was not working well. I threw the rag I was using into the trash and shut everything down at 9:30 p.m.. By 6:50 a.m. the next morning fire was bursting out of the second floor window. ??I lost everything in the workshop. (I do have insurance so most will be restored) ??Cause of fire:
• High ambient temperature (above 90 degrees)
• Stagnant air (fans were off)
• Crumpled up oily rag
• Plastic Garbage can.
?Please be wary, this stuff really happens. I have been using this product for 30 years without a problem, but when the right (or wrong) conditions exist you can loose your workshop or house! ???there were 28 models, 9 kits and bags of electronics plus a full array of woodworking tool all gone.”
