Explosions

Newsroom quote of the day:

"Why does Lake Wilson keep blowing up?"

It was said in relation to this story about a vaporizer explosion in the small town of Lake Wilson.

It wasn’t meant to be funny; tiny Lake Wilson has suffered a surprising number of explosions and other disasters before.

A propane explosion in January 2004 damaged a two and a half block radius. Prior to that, the town was hit hard by a tornado in the 1990s and Lake Wilson’s downtown was destroyed in a fire in the 1900s.

Fortunately, this time no injuries were reported.
