"Answer:

If you heat the test tube from the bottom, any liquid can turn into a gas. The gas will rapidly expand shooting heated liquid out of the test tube like a cannon. ... Accidents happen even heating the test tube gently at an angle can result in heating liquid being shot out of the test tube."
