I would imagine that a large tank would be outside the house, but pretty close to it. Say 5 to 25 yards away maybe. I have no idea how big this tank would be, but the ones we use in this area are freaking huge. Companies send trucks out to refill them so if you are in a remote area you want a pretty big tank. It would actually be more likely to be pierced if it was outside the structure and could have vented for some time. Still, the fire could have been started in a lot of different ways. I'm just pointing out that a container of flammable gas was reportedly associated with the structure.
