UNION MILLS, Ind. (AP) - An explosion at a fertilizer plant in northwest Indiana has killed one person.
The LaPorte County Sheriff's Department confirmed that one person was killed in an explosion in Union Mills.
Sheriff's Deputy Neil Lachmund says all other people are accounted for after the explosion Monday afternoon at the Union Mills Co-op. It's about 50 miles southeast of Chicago. Lachmund says two other people are being checked for injuries.
The blast follows one less than two weeks ago at a chemical plant in Louisiana that makes fertilizer. That blast killed done worker and injured seven others.
An April 17 fertilizer plant blast in West, Texas, killed 15 people.
