Oil Pipeline Explodes In Mexico Sending Flames Shooting 16ft Into The Sky

(Mailonline, Stefan Boscia, 8.Apr.2019) — An oil pipeline has exploded in the Mexican city of Leon in the aftermath of a botched attempt to steal fuel by one of the country’s notorious drug cartels.

Flames reaching as high as sixteen feet were the only lights some residents of the central Mexican city could see on Saturday night as the explosion caused mass blackouts.

The explosion occurred after a group of ‘huachicoleros’ – cartel bandits who steal petrol and adulterated alcohol – were trying to pilfer oil from the pipeline when they accidentally caused the explosion.
