08/10/08 62 W, 1 I - + 10 - 9 Toronto Propane Explosion

Found on Firegeezer, here's a stunning shot from the propane facility explosion in Toronto that's killed one firefighter. The identity of the 25-year veteran has yet to be released. Joseph Rowland took the photo that's surfaced on the Channel 24 site. There's a full story at that same link. What's the size of that fireball? Holy cow.

The Toronto Fire Department has lost 178 members since 1848. View their honor roll, http://www.toronto.ca/fire/honour_roll.h.., and learn about their firefighter memorial monument, http://www.toronto.ca/fire/monument.htm..

I would wager that the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki saw something very similar in August of 1945.
