Georgia Aluminum Plant Explosion Injures 5 Workers

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 30-Jun-2016

On Wednesday, an explosion at Bonnell Aluminum in Newnan, Georgia — just 35 miles southwest of Atlanta — resulted in five workers sustaining injuries ranging from wounded to life-threatening. The blast could be felt up to a mile away.

Two of the workers were treated at the scene, while two others were transported to a local hospital and one was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center.

Images of the scene could be seen from television helicopters covering the story, showing the plant’s roof with a gaping hole and scraps of debris surrounding the area. Witnesses reported hearing a load blast and comparing it to something “shooting 50,000 times.”

Officials for the aluminum plant released a statement, citing that it was too early to determine a cause, but that it would be working with local fire officials to conduct their investigation. The explosion also caused damage to Sewell Marine, a nearby business, as well as started a small fire on a boat in the business’ lot.

Bonnell Aluminum was established in 1955 and has been a leading manufacturer of custom pieces.
