Bryson Lewis Found Dead Following An Explosion in Mechanicsville

Bryson Lewis Death – Hanover Fire-EMS responded to an explosion today in Mechanicsville that killed a 21-year-old King William man. At 5:08 p.m., Hanover Fire-EMS crews were called to the 6000 block of Billingswood Drive in Mechanicsville for a reported explosion with possible injuries. Upon arrival, crews found Bryson Lewis of King William dead as a result of injuries sustained in the event.

Investigators from the Office of the Fire Marshal and Hanover County Sheriff’s Office conducted an investigation into the night. It has been determined that the incident was a result of flammable vapors being ignited while the top of a 55-gallon drum was being removed with cutting tools. During the course of the investigation, no other parties were found to be injured in the incident, nor any damage to property.

Hanover Fire-EMS extended its deepest sympathy to the family and those affected by this tragic incident. Hanover Fire-EMS’ Office of the Fire Marshal would ask that all citizens use extreme caution when working with containers that previously held flammable or combustible contents.

Extra precautions should be used, such as filling the container with water or other efforts to suppress any remaining vapors prior to the use of tools that could create an ignition source. Hanover Fire-EMS also extended thanks to Hanover sheriff David R. Hines and his staff for their assistance in the investigation.
