Container storage site. A container of nitrocellulose overheated causing the original explosion. The second, larger explosion was 800 tonnes of ammonium nitrate.

Dam that was one huge Boom. And here I thought Ammonium nitrate was only used as fertilizer cause I remember on the bags we used was N₂H₄O₃
