TOONE, Tenn. (AP) - An explosion at a manufacturing plant in western Tennessee has injured at least one person.

WMC-TV reports the blast happened around 10:50 a.m. at a plant in Toone owned by the Kilgore Flares Company.

The worker suffered severe burns and was airlifted to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis. The worker's condition was not known Saturday afternoon.

The TV station reports that more employees were hurt, though the extent of those injuries was not known.

Emergency crews put out the fire at the plant, which makes air and naval decoy flares for the military.
