Huge fireball erupts in Russian city of Volgograd as electricity ignites fuel tanker
A blast set off by a fire at a Russian gas station sent a fireball roaring through the sky on Monday, in scenes that went viral on social media. The blast, in the city of Volgograd, saw at least 13 people hurt, Fox News reported , with 10 victims going to hospital. The blast is said to have been sparked by an electricity discharge, as a fuel tanker truck was unloading at the site.
