TAVARES, Fla. - NEW DEVELOPMENTS:
A voluntary evacuation order is in place for some residents due to the discovery of another leak on a large propane tank.
A series of massive explosions rocked a propane facility in Tavares, Florida, injuring at least eight employees overnight Monday into Tuesday, according to officials.
Officials say most of the eight injured were being treated for burns and other related injuries.
A Lake County Sheriff's spokesperson said at a 2 a.m. news conference that all employees were accounted for after 15 were believed to have been missing.
Seven employees, out of 24 to 26 employees scheduled to work Monday night, have been hospitalized following the massive explosion that began around 10:30 p.m.
Scott Brokimeyer of Blue Rhino said the plant facility's management stated all employees known to have been at the facility Monday night had been accounted for.
"Several were injured during the incident and taken to local hospitals. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their loved ones. We applaud the fast response of local emergency personnel, and we have pledged our full support to them as they investigate the cause of the incident," Brokimeyer said.
The spokesperson said it appeared many of them left the scene after the explosions began and later came back to report in to management and emergency officials.
