Fire at Austin City Limits

The Dallas Observer’s music blog DC-9 at Night is reporting a massive fire at the ACL Fest. Seems a couple of propane tanks exploded near one of the makeshift taverns in Zilker Park. According to this report in Austin 360.com, two people are critically injured, and multiple others have been taken to Brackenridge Hospital with second and third-degree burns.

The music continued at 3:10, 40 minutes after the blast. – John Nova Lomax
