Six Hurt After Petroleum Tank Explosion

SANTA PAULA, Calif. (AP) ― Six people are hospitalized after an explosion caused by a farmworker using a torch to remove the lid from a 55-gallon petroleum drum in Santa Paula.

Ventura County Fire Department spokesman Bill Nash says three people were hospitalized in critical condition and three others, including a 4-year-old girl, had moderate injuries after Sunday's explosion.

Witnesses say all the victims were standing near the tank when it exploded.
