Happening Now: Massive explosion at Ohio metal factory
· Feb 20, 2023 · NottheBee.com

Is it just me, or are factories, food processing plants, warehouses, and trains exploding way more than they used to?

FOX 5 Cleveland reports that firefighters extinguished the blaze just before 3:40 p.m.

It happened at I Schumann & Co., located in the 22500 block of Alexander Road. The business is a brass and bronze alloy manufacturer.

At least one person was reported injured according to Reuters, with other accounts saying as many as 12 people had been severely burned.

Others reported a "mass casualty incident," such as DailyMail, but these seem to be based off hearsay and the reporting of outlets such as "Fox 3 Now," which seems to be a copycat outfit (with a poorly photoshopped logo) based out of Pakistan, according to its Facebook page.

We'll let you know if authorities confirm any further injuries or casualties.
