At least one worker suffered injuries after propane tanks at his workplace in Las Vegas suddenly exploded, an August 18 article from the Las Vegas Sun reported.

Reports said the explosion took place at a hot-air balloon company in the 4300 block of Polaris Avenue in the western portion of the Las Vegas Strip. The worker, only identified as a 35-year-old employee of “Vegas Balloon Rides,” was reportedly refilling propane tanks when the blast occurred. Clark County Fire authorities stated that the explosion compromised two bigger propane tanks that led to another explosion. The lone worker, who sustained burn injuries to his leg and arm that were believed to be non-life threatening, was transported to University Medical Center. Authorities are investigating the cause of the explosion.
