Well, this is very much not the kind of news you want to read:

One person is in critical condition and thousands of cows are believed to have been killed in an explosion and fire at a dairy farm in the Texas Panhandle Monday night.

The explosion happened at the Southfork Dairy Farm in Dimmitt at about 7:30 p.m. According to KCBD-TV in Lubbock, a worker was trapped inside the milking facility and was hospitalized in critical condition after being rescued by first responders.

The news network does not say how many cows were killed, but other outlets reported a staggering 18,000 cows possibly dead.

Footage from the incident showed a conflagration of unthinkable size.

Unsettling stuff.
