NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say five workers have been injured in an explosion at an aluminum plant in Newnan, Georgia, about 35 miles southwest of Atlanta.

 

Explosion

 

The Newnan Times-Herald reports that the blast at Bonnell Aluminum Plant on Wednesday morning shook downtown buildings located nearly a mile away.

 

The company said in a statement that one of the injured employees was flown to Atlanta Medical Center, and two others were taken to a local hospital. The company said the other two employees were treated at the scene.

 

The Newnan newspaper said the explosion also damaged a building at another business, Sewell Marine, and caused a small fire in a boat on the lot, which was quickly extinguished.
