Gas bottle explodes on small island causes massive destruction

Massive in a relative sort of way. What do you think the house on the joined island is, prison or palace?

This was the staggering scene after a faulty gas cooker exploded in a timber-framed shack, and devastated a tiny Caribbean island.

The blast caused an inferno that leapt from hut to hut, taking less than ten minutes to sweep across Soledad Miria.

Many of the 1,014 inhabitants dived into the sea or took to fishing boats to escape. More than a third - 348 - were injured but, amazingly, no one died. (from here)
