'Acetylene Cylinder Incidents and Natural Gas Incidents: Fire and Rescue Service Manual - Volume 2: Fire Service Operations' provides guidance on dealing with cylinder incidents involving dissolved acetylene cylinders and incidents involving natural gas. Acetylene is a highly flammable compund, which makes it unique amongst industrial gases in general use as it can decompose to constituent elements if exposed to extreme heat or shock. This can then lead to percussive explosions.
