Explosions and fire destroy buildings at the Fairbanks Natural Gas LLC fueling station (located at Point MacKenzie in South Central Alaska) for LNG trucks that deliver fuel north 430 miles over the Parks Highway to Fairbanks, Alaska.  Two major explosions are visible in this series of shots from the FAA's Aviation Weather webcam. The first occurred at 7:38 AM and the second 30 minutes later.  Fires continued throughout the night.  The cam sequence ends at 11:18 AM on 12/18/09 (27 hours 40 minutes after the initial explosion).
