Donaldsonville, La. • One person was killed and several others injured Friday in an explosion at a south Louisiana chemical plant, only miles from where another blast killed two plant workers the previous day, authorities said.
Louisiana State Police Trooper Jared Sandifer said five people were injured, three of them critically, and were taken to area hospitals following Friday evening's explosion at a CF Industries facility in Donaldsonville. The identity of the person killed in the blast wasn't immediately released.
Sandifer said the explosion didn't pose a threat to the area surrounding the plant.
