Fire at Australian gas plant

A series of explosions has severely damaged a gas processing plant in the Australian state of Victoria.
Two people were dead, and eight others were injured, one of them critically, according to officials.

About five blasts at the Esso plant at Sale, about 180km (110 miles) east of Melbourne, were followed by a large fire.

The plant, which supplies all gas and crude oil for Victoria, has been shut down.

"The air was filled completely with dense black smoke and flames,"
said Elizabeth McGuinness, who runs a glass and security door store a few kilometres away from the site.
