3 injured after explosion at South Texas cement plant

SAN ANTONIO — Authorities say three workers were injured in an explosion at a San Antonio cement plant.

Spokeswoman Deborah Foster of the San Antonio Fire Department says the Tuesday afternoon blast occurred in a coal mill at Capitol Aggregates.

The company’s carbon dioxide suppressant system had already put out the fire by the time firefighters arrived at the scene. Authorities haven’t announced what caused the explosion or the identities of the workers.

At least one of the employees was taken to a hospital, where his or her condition wasn’t immediately known.
