Lake County fire-fighters work to extinguish the remains of a propane plant after massive explosions at the plant in Tavares, Florida July 30, 2013. Dozens of explosions rocked the 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. Seven people were transported to local hospitals, according to Lieutenant John Herrell of the Lake County Sheriff's Office. No one was killed in the blasts, said Herrell.
