BREAKING: Jefferson Parish Explosion
HARVEY, La. (AP) – The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office says one person has been injured in an explosion at an industrial site along the Mississippi River.
Sheriff’s spokesman John Fortunato says one person suffered a minor leg injury in the explosion Tuesday at the Kinder Morgan bulk storage facility in an industrial area of Harvey, a New Orleans suburb on the river’s west bank.
Fortunato did not have more details. A company spokesman had no immediate comment.
Cristy Finnorn owns a nearby boutique. She says she heard about a half-dozen explosions, and saw fire and a man being taken to an ambulance. She says the fire apparently was out within 30 minutes. . .
