We had bike tires blow out in the building I used to work in, we kept them in a storeroom on the first floor. This building had a concrete foundation that was built over a big steam condensate return line. Every few years, the line would start leaking and sections of the floor would heat up- a few spots would get almost too hot to touch. My co-worker unknowingly left his bike over a hot spot on two different occasions and the loud bang nearly had everyone running for the door.
