liquid propane is bad bad stuff.
It's heavier than air so it settles and collects. But not only that, it soaks into the skin very quickly. So I don't think I need to go into details on what situation that can cause.
All in all, if LP was involved, it's going to be nasty....high compressibility, pressurized containers, add in other fuel - Napalm on rails.
NEED TO CLARIFY THIS: Liquid propane is liquid as long as it is under sufficient pressure. The comments above (including being heavier than air and soaking into the skin and hi compressibility) are referring to the VAPORS once this stuff was everywhere.

A military source familiar with Korean Peninsula affairs revealed on 6 May that Syrian technicians were killed in a train explosion incident that occurred on 22 April in Yongch'on in the northwestern part of the DPRK and that the damage was especially serious in that section of the train where the Syrians were aboard, along with large equipment.
The same source noted that although the contents of the equipment are unknown, DPRK military-related personnel wearing protective suits arrived on the scene immediately after the explosion and removed debris only from that section of the train where the Syrian group had been aboard.
Consequently, there is a strong likelihood that the accident occurred when military materials were being secretly transported between the DPRK and Syria.
