Army ammo plant explodes in Tennessee; at least one injured, two missing|
Associated Press (San Francisco Chronicle) October 13, 2004
MILAN, Tenn. -- A thunderous explosion tore through a storage building at an Army ammunition plant Wednesday, causing at least one serious injury and creating a blast that could be heard for miles. Two people were reported missing.
Mayor George Killebrew said one person was airlifted to a hospital, while authorities searched for two others caught in the explosion at the Milan Army Ammunition plant. The cause was not immediately determined, but FBI agent George Bolds had been told by authorities that the blast appeared to be an accident.
"As far as we know, they were moving some barrels of some sort of volatile material and one of the barrels flashed," Bolds said.
