At least six people were injured in a "flash fire" at a plant in west central Tennessee, state officials Tuesday.
The incident occurred at Kilgore Flares Co. in Hardeman County, about 75 miles northeast of Memphis said Jeremy Heidt, spokesman for the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.
The plant makes materials that are flammable, but not explosive, Heidt said.
The Regional Medical Center at Memphis has received three patients, said executive secretary Jackie Harris.
Two were flown in, said Harris, adding she did not know the nature of their injuries or conditions.
Three others were at Bolivar General Hospital in good condition, said spokeswoman Kay Cranford of West Tennessee Healthcare.
