Orlando Sentinel – ORLANDO, Fla. — A large series of explosions rocked a gas plant about 40 miles north of Orlando late Monday, critically injuring two workers and forcing the evacuation of residents at least a mile away, authorities said.
Twenty-four people were working the night shift at Blue Rhino, a propane-tank business. Initially, 15 people were reported missing. But by 2 a.m. Tuesday, all employees had been accounted for, said Lt. John Herrell, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman. There were no reports of fatalities, he said.
The first explosions began a little before 11 p.m. Monday and lasted more than half an hour. They resumed about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday in tractor-trailers loaded with pallets of propane tanks, Tavares Fire Chief Richard Keith said. . . .
There were over A MILLION LBS. OF GAS STORED there! WAFB report: “There were 53,000 20-pound tanks of gas at the Blue Rhino site.” < story has a MAP
The explosions did not affect the heicorders at Bayou Corne (11 p.m. Monday ).
