Three people injured in the incident were transported to a local hospital.
Safety regulations? What safety regulations? We would go out of business if we couldn't burst into flames at random.
"River explodes" would make a nice story, and that verbal proximity caused the difficulty.
God help the English language.
Starting to make me wonder what the heck is going on? Boston, Texas, and now this? Deaths due to mother nature. Nut jobs killing others and their families.
The past decade has seen the world turn violent and that has seeped down to mutate the psyche of those vulnerable on our soil too.
We now have this Illinois terror to deal with. 5 people shot to death.
