People in Milford, TX woke up one morning to a massive explosion along a major gas transport pipeline. As the fire burned thanks to an almost-unlimited supply of fuel at the site of the explosion, all 700 people from Milford were forced to evacuate to a neighboring town.
As we drove from Tyler, we started seeing the plume of smoke from about 45 minutes away. The flames were visible for miles. And the stories we found amongst those people who evacuated were very much worth telling.
