Three Workers Hurt in Virginia Custom Machinery Plant Explosion

July 27, 2018

An explosion has injured three workers at a company in Virginia that makes custom machinery.

News outlets report the employees were hurt Wednesday in the explosion at Thomas Industrial Fabrication in Woolwine, Va.

Patrick County Emergency Services Coordinator Steve Allen told The Roanoke Times the three were all alert as they were taken for medical care.

Allen said in an email that two of the workers probably would be treated and released. He did not provide details about what caused the explosion but says federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration officials will investigate.

Thomas Industrial’s website says the company makes products according to its customer’s specifications.
