Where I worked a lot of spray cans were used. They were full of silicon and
propelent. When a process line was started melted plastic (polyester) came
out of a hole about an inch in diameter and down a shoot about 4 inches
wide. The plastic was pulled off in long slabs about 4 feet long and put
in metel buggies. People would sometimes toss the cans in that buggie. The
plastic was about 250 deg C. The cans would heat up and explode. The full
cans would make the biggest explosion No fire was involved. I tried to
stay out of that area when that was going on.

A couple decades ago, another idiot ^h^h^h^h^h
fellow and I did spray cans on a fire at the
county park. It was a stone structure with
walls, so we didn't figure to be much risk of
shrapnel. I refused to do pesticides. We did
stuff like carb cleaner, ether. The loudest bang
was a mostly empty can of ether car starting
spray. I'd not do that again, any time in my
life, far too dangerous.
P.S. Used to be a volunteer fire fighter. Still
have a lot of the mindset and point of view.

Never had that happen in my experience. Usually treat a shed as a loss from
the get go. No sense in a major attack as there are no life safety issues.
Presuming paint, gaz, insecticides, fromumuda cheese inside. Some sheds
could be knocked apart just by a good blast from the nozzle.
