(WALA) - The Mobile Fire and Rescue Department said two were injured when two barges previously loaded with liquid natural gas exploded and caught fire. Officials said units are on scene on the east side of Mobile River.

Lt. Mike Clawson said two natural gas barges exploded, the first occurring around 8:30 p.m at 200 Dunlap Drive.

It happened between the Bankhead tunnel and waterways; not near Triumph Cruise Ship.

Members of the Coast Guard are on the scene investigation the cause.

APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.
— TS Eliot

Were there any guns on the barges? Did the barges have a permit? Were the barges captained by a tea-party member? Will the moocher be visiting the barges?

Government officials have stated, prior to any investigation, that there’s no frickin way this could be terrorist related. None, whatsoever.

“The Mobile Fire and Rescue Department said two were injured when two barges previously loaded with liquid natural gas...”
I always thought natural gas was carried in containers as compressed natural gas (CNG). Propane is in a liquid state when in a tank.

Same excuse they gave with what happened last week in Waco Texas that it was a lighting strike that set off that blaze.

There are over 15,000 here on student visas who never showed up where they were suppose to, just like the Saudi guy in Boston. This regime wants to take away our rights and freedoms while they import thousands of terrorist from hostile countries. They even pay them welfare benefits so they can spend more time planning their attacks on us. This is outrageous. The American people need to pull their heads out of their asses and wake up.
