Residents Report Sound Of Explosion In Molino

October 22, 2013

Multiple residents reported the sound of an explosion in the Molino area just after 8:00 this morning.

Escambia County’s 911 dispatch only received one phone call from a resident in the 5000 block of Schaag Road reporting the sound, but additional residents on Highway 95A told firefighters that they heard the sound.

Emergency personnel were able to determine the explosive sound probably originated in a wooded area between Schaag Road and Highway 95A,  nearly a mile north of Barrineau Park Road.

Firefighters were unable to locate any damage to structures in the area, and they were unable to pinpoint the exact cause or location of the explosive sound.

The Molino and McDavid stations of Escambia Fire Rescue took part in the investigation.

    Power surge, white flash, boom, sounds to me like a transformer explosion. Wonder if the wind blew a limb across the lines ?

    Those meth head deer are at it again. I agree with dennis, most likely meth cookers screwed up, to bad they don’t explode every time they try making that garbage.

    OH NO! That wasn’t a deer, that was a propane tank!
