    Big-ass industrial fire has police and fire personnel evacuating most of downtown.

    Tanks are exploding by the hundreds. One reporter said two big propane tanks hit Reunion Arena.

    Traffic? Forget it. The Mixmaster is closed.

    Story on Dallas Morning News website says some of the liquified natural gas canisters are landing thousands of yards away.

    I drove through there exactly 24 hours before.

    Good thing Jerry Jones didn't decide to wait a day to open camp. There'd be a lot of people late for the press conference.

    Speaking of Jerry, one of the possible locations Dallas floated for his new stadium a few years ago was right in that area.

    Allen is 25 miles away, so she's safe. But if she works in downtown Dallas, it's going to be an eventful morning.

    Wouldn't want to be in southbound going-home traffic tonight. I-45 will be backed up all the way to Sherman.

    Oh yeah, I'm sure her and her husband is safe.

    Isn't this very close to Dealey Plaza?

    two or three miles on the other side of the interstate. Listening to the radio right now and it sounds like all the fire department can do at this time is just let it burn.
