Explosion At Metal Plant

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jul 27, 2010 7:37PM

Fire crews are on the scene of an explosion at Sipi Metal Corporation, located in the 1700 block of N. Elston (more likely recognized by readers of this site as just a block away from The Hideout). Teachers at Creative Scholars preschool are considering an evacuation of its children due to the incident. Elston has apparently been blocked off around the building. More as word comes in.
