Six Workers Injured After Explosion at a Nevada Concrete Plant
An explosion and fire occurred at a manufacturing facility outside of Boulder City, Nevada on Monday, July 11. Six workers were injured, one of whom had severe burns. According to city officials, the explosion occurred just before 10 a.m. at Armorock Polymer Concrete, a plant located in a remote desert area some 7 miles southeast of Boulder City.
Firefighters first had to wait for a HAZMAT unit to evaluate the situation before they entered to put out the fire, according to Boulder City Deputy Fire Chief Greg Chesser. “All the walls are blown out. All the windows are blown out. Even on the opposite side where the administration section is, all the ceiling is down,” he said. “It was a pretty massive explosion.” Chesser goes on to state that work involving the use of polymer type of chemicals was occurring at the time of the blast. The ensuing fire was put out within 90 minutes and the plant was evacuated, according to local officials.
Six workers are said to have been injured from the incident with one man even being “within the blast and fire area” and suffering significant burns. A second injured person is said to have minor chemical burns, while the others affected were left with minor concussive and heat-related injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate to determine the exact cause of the explosion.
