Two Fuel Barges Explode in Alabama

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.
