I couldn't believe it. As we were riding our bikes to ACL we saw giant plumes of black smoke. Fire trucks were racing past us. I didn't have my credentials yet so I raced in behind one of the trucks on foot before they closed the emergency gates. It was a good thing I got in when I did because for the next hour they wouldn't let anyone in or out of the park. I looked at a few news sites trying to find out more info. I think 2 people were seriously hurt in the blaze and another 2 are in severe condition. It appears that a semi with propane ? caught on fire and caused a few porta potties to catch on fire.
