No injuries in Milwaukee industrial plant explosion

Posted on March 17, 2015 3:24 pm under Fires and Explosions

A propane tank explosion rocked an industrial plant in Milwaukee on March 16, according to a News 4 report.

Acme Galvanizing was on fire by 8 a.m. after a series of booms were heard by those nearby. According to a worker at the plant, propane tanks were being filled when the explosion occurred. Despite workers being present when the fire ignited, there were no injuries reported from the blast. Black smoke radiated from the plant for miles around the area.

The attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® know that, although fortunately no one was hurt in this incident, serious burn injuries and other losses often result from propane tank explosions. In addition to physical injuries, the financial costs associated with these accidents can be nearly as devastating—medical bills, lost wages, and extended treatment alone can accumulate into a significant financial burden.
