TAVARES, Fla. — A fireball lit up the night in central Florida Monday after explosions rocked a propane plant in Tavares.

Several residents called media outlets in Orlando to report seeing flames and hearing loud explosions from the Blue Rhino LP gas plant.

“It sounds like bombs are going off,” one resident told WESH-TV.

The Orlando Sentinel newspaper reported evacuations were underway and there were numerous injuries.

Blue Rhino is a propane tank exchange business.
