SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. – Two men were seriously injured in an explosion at a shop that builds and services race cars in Sedro-Woolley.

Fire Chief Dean Klinger told the Skagit Valley Herald the men put about four gallons of methanol in a 55-gallon barrel in the parking lot Sunday night, sat on top and lit it on fire for a "barrel ride."

Klinger says, "Apparently it was supposed to slide across the parking lot like a rocket. Instead it blew up."

He says one end of the barrel flew 120 feet.

The men were responsive when paramedics arrived at Funk Racing. They were taken to United General Hospital then flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with severe burns.

The difference between a rocket and a bomb is....not much at all.

Saw the same trick done with oxy-acetylene and a coke bottle.

The doctors were fairly certain they got all the glass dug out of him... I don't think he came back to school that year.

They were straddling the barrel and received severe burns, maybe not.
