A view of the alcohol explosion in Mexico City posted earlier on twitter.

A booming fireball from an alcohol factory in Mexico City’s Cuahtemoc neighborhood sent a jolt through the city on Monday after a tanker exploded. The cause is not yet known, but we assume this kind of explosion only comes from the high-proof good stuff. The kind of unfiltered 88.8% abv booze that pappy would drink before he told your mom he didn’t love her anymore.

Spicy pics from Mexico's High Tech Urban Surveillance Center.

Numerous videos appeared on social media both near and far away from the blast.

Reports so far indicate that one person was injured. Word has not come in on the amount of tequila or beer was lost. We'll be pouring one out for our friends in Mexico City today.
