    Three people are injured Wednesday night after two fuel barges exploded on the Mobile River in Alabama. The barges were filled with natural gas and exploded not far from where a Carnival cruise ship was docked. Three people by the barges were taken home with burn injuries, and a one-mile safety radius has been set up around the barges. Officials say they believe all the potentially injured are accounted for.
