Richard Werner caught the stunning explosion on video as he passed by along Highway 491. The McKinley County Sheriff’s Office told KRQE that the warehouse behind the gas station seen in the video also contained stockpiles of hay, making for an especially combustible trifecta.
“You can feel the heat in the car!” Werner says, laughing, as a fireball erupts in the sky.
The highway was shut down for hours., according to KOB.
