You may have seen the national news about the explosion in Farmington, Maine. (About 20 miles from where I am)

Veteran firefighter killed, seven others injured in Farmington explosion

Firefighters were called to the Farmington Falls Road building at about 8:07 a.m. for a smell of propane. The explosion occurred minutes later.

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we pay the military pay to protect the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes us very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

I will be interested to find out if it was really propane as in a propane tank on site or is it actually natural gas piped in from a town network.

Propane. They had just had a delivery over the weekend. Propane is the primary gas in this area.

Reports are saying insulation. I’m also assuming it was the agency’s paperwork.

I'm guessing insulation, finest kind. They must use a lot up there it looks like a pillow factory exploded.
