This explosion took place well after dawn of the morning after the attack on the ammo dump.  As far as anyone could tell, it was a bunker which contained 26 500 pound bombs that cooked off and exploded together.  It was quite an impressive show, collapsing the roof of the movie theater, blowing in many doors and windows, and causing sand to rain down for several hours.  This picture was taken from my hooch area, about a mile from ground zero.
