Photos ~ Atlas Foundry fire aftermath

Just wanted to post a couple more shots of the aftermath from that Atlas Foundry explosion yesterday. Local damage to the Atlas facility is pretty severe with partial collapse of one structure near the exploded propane tanks. No building sat across Hosmer from the accident but instead what looks like a storage yard of palettes and other misc equipment. Just east down South Tacoma way a nearby day care looked to have a window blown out but I didn't see any other signs of damage to buildings behind the police blockade. The News Tribune is reporting that four people were injured, one seriously who was take to Harbor View in Seattle.
