Crane explosion injures employees

Five employees were injured after a pyrotechnic facility inside a southern Indiana naval base accidentally exploded on March 28.

A Spokesman for Crane Army Ammunition Activity, Tom Peske, said five employees were injured after an explosion occurred around 5 p.m. during a routine operation clean-up inside Crane naval base, 85 miles southwest of Indianapolis. The pyrotechnic facility, according to Peske, produced illumination mortars used to provide light to soldiers in the military. The injured employees were examined and treated in the hospital, and then were later released.

The pyrotechnic facility was temporarily closed while Crane investigated the cause of the explosion accident.
