It seems that 10% of the Nosler ammunition plant was leveled in an explosion yesterday afternoon. All 100 employees were evacuated and are just fine, with the only outside loss being a worker’s car that was buried in rubble.
Witnesses said work was under way in the ballistics tunnel, a testing area for ammunition, when there was a flash, followed by an explosion, the television station reported.
Barb Gonzalez, who lives near the plant, said the blast was like “feeling a bomb inside your house.” Gonzalez said she saw dense plumes of orange smoke above the plant.
So, I guess that load was a little hotter than they expected. (via Outdoor Pressroom)
