NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a reported explosion at a Dow Chemical plant in northeastern Massachusetts has injured four people and damaged part of the building.
Firefighters, paramedics and police responded to the plant in North Andover at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
NH1 News is on the scene, and we'll have live updates from the plant at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. tonight on WBIN-TV and NH1.com.
State Department of Fire Services spokeswoman Jennifer Mieth says there are initial reports of four people having been brought to hospitals, including one with serious injuries.
North Andover Town Manager Andrew Maylor says the incident happened quickly and there appears to be no danger to the surrounding area.
A Dow Chemical spokeswoman didn't immediately return a message Thursday.
The cause of the blast is under investigation.
