    Didn't see a explosion, I suppose the fire might have been caused by a explosion but it was not seen.

    What I see is a small “bleed off “fire & bleeding off a bunch of what I presume to be salt water.....otherwise it would be on fire also..I’ve worked on these wells for the past 30 years also.

    I think what we're seeing, is the aftermath of an explosion (assuming the helicopter wasn't already standing by for the event).

    The large blackened areas, trailers, and structure(s) still burning. Brush still burning along the rear fence line.
