  • Description

    Fire July 8 melted cars on Philadelphia streets, after a double explosion killed three workers in an oil and solvent processing plane.

    The first explosion quickly followed, and then the fire with heat so base soya-bean oil in a huge ball of fire 100 ft across a road and some railroad tracks.

    A second blast quickly followed, and then the fire with heat so intense that a dozen parked cars sagged to the ground with body work melted.
