It's fun that you're playing around with different effects. Is it realistic? Not really, but I don't know if that's what you're going for. The pieces after the explosion fall much slower than before the explosion. The fire is on without warning, and then off after the explosion. Try matching a real life example with some of these techniques. Keep up the good work!
