This issue was discussed during the 1997 sci.astro debates, when Jim
Scotti engaged the Zetas in debate.  Here's a page from the past ...

    This is correct, as the explosion was as a result of
    burning methane, and the burn was LIT by the wick
    traveling back along the wisp of methane that had
    been blow up and southwest by the prevailing westerlies
    over Siberia. What witnesses saw was the burn off of
    methane that had disbursed into the air and was not
    sandwiched between burning masses so that its heat
    had NOWHERE to go, the basis of exploding, rather
    than burning, gas bombs. The process was:

    1. methane gas hisses out from under frozen permafrost
       that had been cracked like a sheet of glass due to
       earth stress, pre-shock to the earthquake that was
       recorded during the Tunguska explosion.

    2. methane gas mixes with the air as it rises, followed
       by more hissing air, so that a HUGE cloud of
       methane has formed in the atmosphere over
       Tunguska, equivalent to all the natural gas at any
       given time in the US.

    3. a wick of methane that has drifted upward and
       southeast, driven by the prevailing westerlies, is
       sparked due to the air movement, the same process
       that causes lighting due to rapid air movement
       during storms.

    4. the lit methane burns rapidly back along the 
       wick, the "meteor" that was seen, lights all the
       gas that is encountered but before all but the nearest
       witnesses can see it, those who DIED in the
       explosion, an overburn over gasses closer to the
       surface prevents heat from rising and an explosive
       situation occurs.
