Blue Rhino propane refilling plant on fire - LET IT BURN!

8:12 am, July 30, 2013

ORLANDO, Florida -- Dozens of explosions rocked a propane tank servicing plant in central Florida, northwest of Orlando, late on Monday, injuring seven workers, at least three critically, and prompting the evacuation of nearby homes, authorities said.

No one outside the plant was hurt by the blasts, which began at about 10:30 p.m. local time at the Blue Rhino propane gas filling station in the town of Tavares, about 40 miles northwest of Orlando, said John Herrell, a Lake County sheriff's spokesman.

Why let it burn?
1. They gave swap out customers tanks with proprietary valves that only they could fill effectively forcing them to either discard their cylinder or only be a Blue Rhino customer
