Report of an explosion sends firefighters to Peru company

Posted by wlpo on October 21, 2010

A cylinder apparently exploded sending two people from a Peru packaging company to an area hospital.  Fire fighters were called to Pretium Packaging on the city’s northwest side, south of Interstate 80 at about 3:45pm Thursday.

Firefighters were back at the station by 4:30pm.  No word yet on the condition of the people that were injured.
