Tire Blowout

I was driving on the interstate yesterday at about 65-70mph when all of a sudden i had a rear tire blow. No warning signs, just went. Luckily no one was near me and the truck didn't lose control. I had driven about 25-30 miles from my house. Tires were all at 65psi cold, and about 70psi when I checked them after driving, tires are rated for 80psi. Didn't notice any dry-rotting or bubbles or anything.
My question is, should I worry about the other tires? Or is this just one of those freak things that just happens.

Tires: Firestone Transforce AT 265/75/15

Yea happened to me one time. My rear tire blew on the highway and replaced it. No more than 15 minutes back on the road my other rear tire blew. They were both Firestones with 50% tread left. Pissed me the ***k off. I just ended up buying all new tires, switched to BFG's.

I had my parents and my 8yr old niece in the truck, def could have been worse.
I just checked and the tires were made in 2006. My other rear tire is in the same condition that that one was. Fronts have a lot of tread still. I decided to put my harley rims back on since winter is almost over. Sounds like I should just get two new rear tires for next winter when I put the rims back on.

I would take the tire into Firestone and see what they say. They should replace that tire at least for free. could have been a lot worse.
