Default LP line from tank to regulator blows apart

Fridge had the "lack of gas" LED lit and I wanted to trouble shoot the problem.

Found this gas line from the tank to the regulator blown apart. Original equipment, about 10 years old. And of course the tank is empty.

Anybody else had this happen?

Count yourself lucky. Here's a likely sequence of events:

(1) The hose blows apart, filling the compartment with gas.

(2) The fridge tries to start up, using an electric spark to light the flame.

If those two things had happened within, say, a couple minutes of each other, it could have been really exciting. Maybe even if they were within a couple hours of each other, n'est-ce pas?
