LEE COUNTY, Fla. – Charred remains are all that’s left of a trailer after multiple propane tank explosions in Buckingham.

It happened Thursday at Paradise Ranch on Staley Road.

Firefighters say several propane tanks exploded, causing a trailer on the property to also explode.

Thankfully no one was inside.

“Most of the propane had vented before our arrival…we pulled our attack lines out there, put our screens onto that when we finish extinguishing the trailer,” said battalion chief Matt Williams.

No injuries were reported and crews are still investigating what caused the propane tanks to explode.
