    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Apparently there is a warehouse fire in North Las Vegas in the area of Craig and Lamb. Reports of very large explosions and at least one person trapped in the warehouse at this time. Anybody have any other information? I can see the explosions from my front yard..... Northeast is very active right now on 159.210.

North Las Vegas P.D. is advising that the fire was caused by a lighting strike to a propane tank. Multiple large explosions at a propane gas company. CCFD is saying that the fire is completely out of control and to expect further explosions throughout the night and also to expect power outages in the area. Las Vegas Metro moved all normal call operations to TAC 2 and the fire traffic is staying on Metro Northeast 159.210.

According to a very recent transmission an evacuation order of one mile around the center of the incident is still in effect. Concern still exists about the propane tanks.

NLVPD is using SNACC TG ID 36656 for traffic related to the incident and NHP just shut down I-15 south of I-215 in the North area, again due to the risk of an explosion.

The news media is reporting that the cause of last night's explosions was that of "human error" and not lightning. The fire continues but not to the degree of last night and the largest fear is that further explosions could happen thus the need for evacuation. The concern of fire officials deals with a large tank that is partially filled with propane and is very hot due to the fire. The various talk groups mentioned earlier continue with activity.
I-15 remains closed from Cheyenne to I-215 north of Craig Road.

The situation seems to be largely under control at this time and many of the roads near the site are being opened.

On the map I have I don't see a proposed 50 & 58, but I do see a proposed 57 (and since this is a government issued map it's probably out of date) which will be located at Centennial & Losse area...

Looking at the map, it looks like a good place would be north of the beltway... But again, this IS the government we're dealing with here.

The next time I see someone with the FD I'll ask, but who knows when that will be. :p
