BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - Two workers have been injured in a plant accident in southeast Nebraska.

Firefighters and medics were sent to the Continental Carbonic Inc. plant a little after 9 a.m. Sunday. The plant sits about five miles northwest of Beatrice. Beatrice Fire Capt. Craig Fisher told Beatrice radio station KWBE (https://bit.ly/1XugsHc ) that some type of blast or pressure release of carbon dioxide injured the two people.

One of the workers was flown to a Lincoln hospital. The other was taken to a Beatrice hospital. Their names and conditions haven’t been released.

A company representative didn’t immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press. The company makes dry ice products.
