Injuries: Eight people were injured, with at least three in critical condition.
An Orlando Regional Medical Center spokesperson confirmed three burn victims from Blue Rhino had been admitted in critical condition.
John Herrell of the Lake County Sheriff's Office said early Tuesday that no one died despite massive blasts that ripped through the Blue Rhino propane plant late Monday night. Officials initially scrambled to find more than a dozen employees after the explosions.
No injuries were reported outside of the propane plant.
Evacuations: 50 homes were evacuated Monday night but residents were allowed back in about four hours later. Authorities announced a mile-radius evacuation following reports of the plant fire. The evacuation zone was reduced to a half-mile radius hours later. Residents of roughly 50 homes were affected by the evacuation.
Current Conditions: Fire is 100% controlled
