Cooking aboard the boat is electric. The Coast Guard does not allow gas stoves.
The fuel is diesel which does not ignite easily.
The divers tanks are filled with air or Nitrox, no Oxygen. All is below 40% which is a safe level. The Nitrox is generated by a Nuvair membrane system. No oxygen is stored for that purpose. The news outlets reporting this as a possible cause are idiots.
There is a small amount of Oxygen stored for first aid use only.
