A fuel tanker rolled over and caught fire. The burning fuel caused the overpass above the accident to collapse. It’s going to be a long time before I-75 is running normal past 9 Mile Road. Amazingly, nobody was seriously hurt or killed.

This one is the Enschede fireworks explosion. This was filmed from a very close vantage point, and I am left to wonder if the cameraman survived the last explosion without being injured.
On 3 November 2004, N. P. Johnsens Fyrværkerifabrik fireworks factory exploded in Seest, Denmark. 284 tons of fireworks went off. The blast caused much damage to the surrounding area, and killed one firefighter. The video is amazing. Although it’s a devestating fire and explosion, it seems festive with all the fireworks going off around it.
