A series of mysterious explosions early Friday injured a woman, destroyed a storage building, damaged several homes and automobiles and set fire to a 12,000 gallon kerosene tank at the Gulf Oil bulk plant at Princeton.
“I yelled at my granddaughter to get out — I thought we were being bombed,” said Mrs. L.C. Holt, 68, who said three explosions rocked the area near her home.
