BREAKING: Grain Bin Explosion At Indiana Cooperative Kills One
An explosion at a fertilizer plant in northwest Indiana has killed one person.
The Sheriff’s Department confirms that one person was killed in an explosion in Union Mills, IN.
Deputy Neil Lachmund says all other people are accounted for after the explosion Monday afternoon at the Union Mills Co-op. It’s about 50 miles (80 kilometres) southeast of Chicago. Lachmund says two other people are being checked for injuries.
The blast follows one less than two weeks ago at a chemical plant in Louisiana that makes fertilizer. That blast killed one worker and injured seven others.
