After Tuesday's propane fire near Rose Hill, many people wondered if the record breaking 111 degree heat was a factor in the explosion, but propane experts say the gas doesn't become flammable until it reaches close to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. “The flammability level for propane is right around 920 degrees,” said Mike Tanner, the General Manager at Wayman Oil Company. “ For propane to ignite or for there to be a fire, it's like anything else. You've got to have an ignition source and you've got to have oxygen.” Tanner says people should avoid smoking close to propane tanks and if they smell a leak, turn off the gas supply vauve and call a professional or 911 fro help.

In spring, the days get longer and so does the grass. But along with the green, people will also see a little bit of yellow. "We're just a big white building right off the side of the road," says engineering manager Ron Lefevre. And Hustler Turf Equipment, in Hesston, keeps getting bigger. Inventor of the zero turn lawn mower, Hustler manufactures thirty-thousand yellow mowers each year. Mowers are stacked high off the ground and hanging in the air. About 400 people work at the Hustler to make the high powered machine for commercial and residential use. "With the assembly line that we have set up its about every five to six minutes that we have a new mower coming off the line," says Lefevre.
