BREAKING: Explosion at Chemical Plant in Ohio


Late Wednesday morning, a serious incident went down at the Royal Chemical Company in Macedonia.

Parked out front of the factory was a tanker truck that exploded.

One person ended up with life-threatening burns but, good news, they’re expected to pull through.

Macedonia’s firefighters rushed to the scene around 11:40 a.m.

As for what caused the blast, well, that’s still under investigation.

It’s been reported that it’s sodium hydroxide and it leaked into a nearby creek.

Summit County Hazmat is working on containment.

But officials say “the water is fine.”

If I were in Macedonia, I’d switch to bottled water ASAP.
