The sugary mess caused by a syrup tank explosion is our Video of the Day.
A leak in the tank caused 800-thousand gallons of syrup to burst and cover a nearby residential area.
The nine-inch-deep syrup flowed through the area like lava, covering cars and a number of gardens.
No one was hurt in the explosion, but the mess destroyed an electrical transformer shutting off electric power to the syrup company.
