MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Explosion after explosion rocked the downtown Mobile area, after a fuel barge caught fire Wednesday, April 24.
FOX10 News caught all seven explosions on camera. However, some of our viewers did, too.
One of those people was Tad Denson with Airwind Creative . He was able to capture one of the explosions on camera, and shared it with FOX10 News.
He said he heard noises on his roof, and at first he thought someone was trying to steal copper. He quickly realized it was something bigger.
"A couple of years ago, we had some guys jump on the roof while we were working late, trying to get the copper, so I thought they were doing that again," said Denson.
Denson walked outside and saw emergency vehicles flying by. His neighbor said she had heard it was an explosion. That's when he grabbed his camera.
"It looked like three or four huge bonfires. And then when another compartment would break, a huge plume and explosion. Trees rattled and people ducked for cover. It was that loud and that massive," said Denson.
Denson said everyone was concerned for others safety, wondering if there were any injuries. He said he saw in the video debris flying, but only saw it through the camera lens.
Denson said it was quite a scene to be a part of, but more importantly was concerned for the city.
"When something like this happens in our city we care," said Denson.
