A propane warehouse caught fire in Florida’s Highlands County, sending at least one person to the hospital.
Sebring-are fire crews responded to a call of a large structure fire, only to discover the building was housing a considerable amount of propane.
According to ABC Action News, the fire jumped to a nearby mobile home park, where it destroyed around ten structures.
Highlands County Fire Rescue public safety director Marc Bashoor reported that one propane worker was injured and sent to the hospital.
The area was sealed off to all traffic for some time.
“You’re ready to run in and put the fire out,” Bashoor said. “This is one of those scenarios where we have to isolate the area, deny entry for anybody, including firefighters.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
