British holidaymakers at one of my properties nearby rang me at 5am, they had heard loud bangs, could see the flames, but had not yet been evacuated.
Others were too far away.

The huge blasts began just after 11 p.m. and then continued every few seconds for a period of around two hours
Fifteen workers were initially reported missing, feared dead, but Blue Rhino said that by 2 a.m. Tuesday all of its employees had been accounted for
