Cause Of Explosion And Four Alarm Fire At Trucking Company Still Unknown


Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of an explosion at a North Carolina trucking company which sent six employees to the hospital.

Firefighters got word of the fire at Wilson Trucking Corporation in Charlotte around 6 a.m. today. On site reports say that the explosion happened on the loading dock.

It took approximately 80 firefighters almost an hour to get the fire under control. Hazmat teams were also on the scene.

One employee received injuries serious enough to be thought life threatening earlier in the day, but his condition is now listed as stable. Five other people were also taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

It is still unclear what triggered the explosion and fire.
