At least two people in Marshfield, Massachusetts suffered serious injuries on May 26 after a propane tank ruptured while being refilled, 95.9 FM WATD reported.

According to reports, the explosion happened on Route 139 at Williams Coal and Oil. The propane tank that was being refilled by a worker suddenly ruptured and flew into the sky, hitting utility lines. It was later revealed that the worker and the customer having the tank filled were both injured by debris caused by the blast. Police Chief Phil Tavares said the victims were fortunate that they were not hit directly by the ruptured tank, as this may have caused an immediate death. The state’s OSHA is assisting the Marshfield Fire Department in their investigations.
