several volunteer firefighters told ABC News today that even though the first responders believed the site would explode, they stayed in order to buy time to evacuate residents at a nursing home. “All their actions — the EMT, the civilians — did delay the fire enough so that the people in the rest home could move from the front to the back of the building,” said Pat Grimm, a real estate agent and volunteer firefighter. “And we were able to evacuate those people. There could have been 40 lives lost because they didn’t delay the fire.”
The cause of the explosion is still under investigation.
