WAREHOUSE EXPLOSION @ Slauson & McKinley Ave, South Los Angeles

WAREHOUSE EXPLOSION @ Slauson & McKinley Ave, South Los Angeles
The aftermath:

A loud Expolsion KA-BOOOM .....About 12:40am shook my house in South L.A. About 4 miles east of me I saw a orange glow in the sky and my son and I grabbed our cameras and headed toward the glow. A warehouse owned by L. A. United Alloys was on fire and it was full of titanium. The more the fire dept. soaked the place with water the more intense the flames got, some times a bright white. After being there for about 2 1/2 hr. I left and got out of my truck to walk back into my house and KA-BOOM-KA-BOOOM again. This time there were injuries. The two blast back to back showered firefighters and engines with molten bits of titanium. The concussion of the blast knocked out some of the windows of the fire vehicles. Hey I tip my hat to yall. You FIRE EXTINGUISHERS do a gr8 job.
