2 Injured in Chemical Explosion at Cincinnati Industrial Waste Facility

From ABC 5:
An explosion at a Cincinnati business injured two people and prompted HAZMAT units to respond early Friday morning.

Emergency personnel were called to the site of the explosion at Environmental Enterprises Inc. at approximately 4 a.m.

Four men were shredding an industrial filter containing sodium chlorate, which is sensitive to friction, causing a flash fire, officials said.

Two people were injured as HAZMAT and fire crews work to extinguish any hot spots as a result of the explosion.
