The scenario was a fry booth propane explosion with dozens of people injured when the Cumberland Fire Department and other area emergency response units took part last week in a mass casualty drill at the Cumberland Fairgrounds. With the fire still burning, first-responders checked victims of the explosion.
Firefighters transport a victim from the scene of the explosion.
Cumberland responder Matt Joyce, left, Dr. John Martel, emergency-medicine physician at Maine Medical Center in Portland, and Gray responder Ben Murphy discuss the extent of injuries to patients.
