7 injured in Texas plant explosion, fire
 

CORRIGAN, Texas (AP) — An explosion has rocked a plywood manufacturing plant north of Houston, injuring seven workers and causing a fire that took hours to extinguish.

The explosion occurred about 6:15 p.m. Saturday at the Georgia-Pacific plant in Corrigan, Texas, a town about 90 miles north of Houston.

Georgia-Pacific official Eric Abercrombie says four injured workers were flown to a Houston hospital. He says they suffered serious burns but that the injuries were not life-threatening. Three other injured employees were taken by ambulance to a hospital in nearby Lufkin. One of them has been released.

It took crews about two hours to extinguish the fire that erupted after the explosion. The cause of the blast remains under investigation.

The plant in Corrigan manufactures plywood and other flooring products.
