Enormous Oil Refinery Explosion & Fire In England

England's "Sky News," under the headline, "Massive Explosions At Fuel Depot," states the following:
A huge fire continues to burn at the country's fifth largest oil storage depot near Hemel Hempstead where a series of explosions injured 43 people early this morning. A fire chief has described it as the largest peacetime incident of its type in Europe(emphasis mine).
Police authorities almost immediately assured the public that the explosion was not caused by terrorists or an airplane. One can only wonder how they have ruled out terrorism when they also admit that they do not yet know the actual cause of the expolsion and subsequent blaze.

Apparently, just a week ago, some Islamist terrorist group urged British Muslims to strike against the country. Among the targets singled out for special attention were.....yep, you guessed it....oil refineries.
