Exclusive Photos: Fire to the Node

While AT&T continues looking into the cause of its Houston equipment incident, Light Reading has obtained exclusive photos of the telco cabinet wreckage before the charred equipment was removed from its concrete pedestal and taken back to AT&T for investigation. (See AT&T Eyes Batteries in Explosion Probe.)

These photos, obtained by sources close to the investigation, give a clearer view of just how powerful the initial blast was -- and how hot the fire burned as it incinerated the equipment.

re: Exclusive Photos: Fire to the Node "Smoking gun," LOL. Apt.

I once interviewed the company that used to be called Failure Associates (current name escapes me now), and they showed me a video of what happens when a laptop battery explodes. Let's just say you don't want it in your lap when it happens.
