RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CALIF. (AP) - An explosion in a plastic manufacturing plant in Orange County has killed two people and injured a third person, authorities said Friday.
The force of the blast on Thursday night blew a concrete wall in the Solus Industrial Innovations building and shook a fire station across the street, Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Greg McKeown said.
Firefighters rushed inside and found two bodies. A third victim was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, the captain said.
Three workers who were outside the building declined treatment, he said.
The cause of the explosion is under investigation.
A company representative could not immediately be reached. A telephone recording at Solus said all circuits were busy.
