Brigham City, UT – Man Injured In Shop Explosion On W 5000 NUtah Legal News
Brigham City, UT (April 10, 2019) – On April 10, around 5:15 p.m., Box Elder County fire department responded to the scene of an explosion at an industrial shop on W 5000 N.
According to reports, an employee was welding at the industrial shop when he hit a fuel tank. As a result, the fuel tank exploded. The explosion caused the man to sustain serious injuries, for which he was transported to Bear River Hospital initially. Air transportation was requested to transport the man to another location, but at this time we are not sure if that transfer occurred.
A second worker and a woman at the shop were also both injured in the incident.
We hope the victims injured in this horrific incident are able to make a full and fast recovery. We are praying for them.
