This is why you don't cut into a tank without purging it first .

If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

Not good!! None of the local recyclers around here will buy any type of tanks unless they have a large hole cut in them.

That was a VERY expensive chunk of scrap metal. That dude is lucky it didn't get him.

In the end, this is why I went to a local tank-building shop and had them roll me a tube to spec. I'm not saying it can't be done safely, just that the risk was more than I was willing to take. I could see that flare lighting my house or the woods around it on fire pretty easily. Ouch!!
