Man what a bad trip!

Jones said investigators believe the fire and explosion started due to a leak in a propane tank mounted on the trailerís front tow hitch.
Wonder how the gas migrated to the inside of the trailer (mod gone bad?)

This incident occurred not too far from me and I just checked our newspaper for any updates - nothing new reported yet.

I'll keep tracking it.
