A certain quantity of gasoline and diesel remained. A number of citizens came to empty what was left, and suddenly the tank exploded. one of the stories says that someone fired at the tank and accused the owner of the land called George Rashid, and there is another version that one of the citizens mistakenly sold a lighter.
