Plant Explosion causes serious injuries and sends two workers to the hospital. The plant explosion occurred at an asphalt plant near the Houston / Galveston area. The explosion created a huge fire and that burned and seriously injured the two workers. One of the men was taken to the hospital by helicopter. The other was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The fire was so severe that it closed down part of the high way while fire fighters worked to get the blaze under control. Six fire departments responded to help get the fire put out. The fire fighters had a difficult time getting the fire under control due to the lack of fire hydrants in the area. Eventually the plant explosion was able to have the fire put out by using a form to snuff out the flames. “Shortly before 4:30 p.m., fire erupted at American Materials, an asphalt manufacturer, located at 2122 Highway 90A.” Fire fighters remained at the location to make sure a hot spot did not occur and reignite the flame. Public safety officials say that the public is not any danger at this time.
Plant Explosions and accidents can severely injury workers who might be near the blast.
