ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Federal and state investigators looking for a cause into a series of explosions at a central Florida propane plant say they've uncovered nothing that indicates a crime was committed.
Maj. Brandon Ball of the Division of State Fire Marshal said Wednesday that investigators have inspected the plant's five-acre property and also interviewed workers who were at the plant when a fireball erupted in a lot outside the plant's two warehouses.
The explosion Monday night sent flames 200 feet into the air and launched tens of thousands of 20-pound propane canisters into the air.
Ball says investigators aren't ready to publicly say where the fire began or what caused it.
