Business reopens after fiery blast


PITTSTON TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – Also picking up the pieces, a Luzerne County business rocked by a fiery explosion.

It was back to normal Saturday, at Modern Gas Sales in Pittston Township, one day after two propane trucks burst into flames.

Excelsior Hose company number two in Duryea shared video of Friday’s propane-fueled fire.  The group of firefighters was among the first to help douse the flames.  They assisted for roughly three hours preventing the fire from spreading.

One of two Modern Gas workers hurt in the fire remains at a burn unit in Allentown with critical injuries.  The other was treated locally and released.

Their names have not yet been released.
