Big Spring Daily Herald ~ July 30, 1956
Dumas (AP) -- A petroleum tank farm explosion and fire killed 19 men yesterday and subsided today to a single fire in one tank.
Fifteen men burned to death almost instantly when a hot wall of fire shot across the ground when the first of four tanks exploded and burned. Four others died later of horrible burns.
