Translate from Spanish: The explosion of Monte Grande, which attracted dozens of families in the locality, and killed a woman and injured 6, was not caused by an accident with a gas cylinder as the first confirmed expertise made by the fire department.
People said they woke up, seconds before the crash and saw a bright light.
Fabian Sequeira told the media:: “I was sleeping, I felt a noise and had it all over me. I have no idea what happened”.
Also, minutes before the explosion, a neighbor took a picture of a fiery object falling from the night sky. The image shows a spherical object with a trail similar to that carried by comets.
The neighbors who were awakened at 2:10 agreed that they saw “a luminous ball that fell from heaven” before the blast, which destroyed one of the houses in the corner of the Los Andes y Luis Vernet, where debris crushed three cars and blast caused the broken glass and masonry of several buildings.
