CAMDEN, Ark. (AP) - At least one person was hospitalized after an explosion at an aerospace and defense plant in south Arkansas.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported the explosion occurred at the Esterline Defense Technologies facility in Camden on Tuesday morning. An Esterline employee says everyone at the plant was accounted for after the explosion, and a state emergency management spokesman says the plant’s campus security reported the situation was under control.

One person who was injured was airlifted to a hospital.

In 2016, an explosion at the Esterline plant seriously injured two people.
