Sounds like fire and gasoline to me. Hydrochloric (aka muriatic) acid is some powerful stuff! Mixed with lye, you would have one helluva reaction. Ever mix simple baking soda with vinegar when you were a kid? I may be wrong, but I'd expect something similar but much stronger, along with a lot of heat.
