Gas explosion hits Dallas

A huge series of explosions at a liquid natural gas (LNG) plant near Dallas, Texas yesterday, has injured three people.
The blasts, at the Southwest Industrial Gases plant, began as a smaller fire became out of control.As the fire spread, it ignited the LNG tanks, each causing a large explosion.The fire is said to be contained but not yet under control, and it was too dangerous to send fire fighters into the blaze, for fear of further explosions.
