Thanks to Matt Tomlins and and Fernando Xavier Frez Meriño, who is a volunteer firefighter in Chile, for alerting STATter911.com to this story.
At least four people were injured and another 600 were evacuated when a gas truck exploded Tuesday at a gas station in the coastal Chilean city of Viña del Mar, authorities said.
The accident occurred soon after 12:30 p.m. when the truck was unloading gas at the station.
The truck had a gas leak that caused it to explode and ignite the fire, witnesses told Radio Cooperativa.
Police immediately cordoned of a perimeter three blocks from the station, while firefighters tried to control the blaze and keep it from spreading to neighboring homes, businesses and a nursery school.
