June 03, 2010
As reported by KTVZ, Nosler's Bend, Ore., facility was rocked by an explosion yesterday afternoon.
Emergency crews were called after a flash was seen in the underground testing facility. A quick-thinking employee pulled the fire alarm, which led to a building-wide evacuation. Shortly afterward, there was an explosion that heavily damaged the 80,000 sq. ft. plant. All 100 plant personnel have been safely accounted for, and workers are now focusing on securing the structural integrity of the remaining portions of the building.
Nosler reported the incident on their Facebook page, thanking customers for their support as the true extent of the damage is calculated. The exact cause of the blast is still unknown.
