Question Fire during hot refuel @ FARP

Back in 1993 I attended a Flight Safety Awareness Day hosted by the RNLAF at Soesterberg. One of the topics was an American pilot (I think he flew Apache) who suffered a fire during hot refuel at a FARP. The nozzle broke and fuel squirted into the engines creating an inferno instantly.

The guys story was very impressive and showed what happens if you don't wear your nomex clothing and long underwear

Is there anyone out there who knows if his story is to be found on the world wide web?

Cheers!
