San Antonio Cement Plant Explosion Results in 3 Injuries

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 24-Feb-2015

Tuesday afternoon was shaken by an explosion at a Capital Cement plan, which is located on the 11,500 block of Nacogdoches road. The Northeast Side cement plant reported that three people suffered injuries in the explosion, with no current updates on their medical conditions.

The San Antonio Fire Department commented on the event, saying that the blast occurred around 2:00 p.m. in one of the coal mills at Capital Aggregates. Though fire crews were called to the scene of the explosion for support, by the time they arrived the flames had subsided. The cement company’s carbon dioxide suppressant system had effectively controlled and put out the flames from the explosion while the fire crew was in transit.

Workers Treated for Face & Chest Burns

Reports claimed that three employees on the scene of the explosion suffered burns to their faces and chest area. Though no official medical reports have been released yet, there is also the possibility that the workers suffered inhalation burns. Currently, all three plant employees have been taken to a local area hospital and are being treated for serious conditions.

Capitol Aggregates has been supplying cement in Texas since 1957 and is well known for their production of cement, coarse and fine aggregates, asphalt products, and base and fills.
