“It could have been much worse,” Gutierrez said, referring to what his son and his son’s girlfriend escaped from the blast.

Hagelgans said two other IGU employees were taken to a local hospital and expected to recover.

Clayton Hollinger, who lives in houses of the blast, said he was encouraged by the community response after the horrific explosion.
Hollinger and his family noted the incident takes place after the arrival of the fire trucks. It was explained that the explosion was not as strong forced percussion as a fire or mortar shutting off at close range, Hollinger said.
He emphasized the damage to his own home several hundred meters as evidence, noting broken windows and other external damages.
